Yes, though Alexey may have meant that the multiple reads of the atomic in
decrement_pinned_vm are racy. It only matters when there's a bug that would
make the counter go negative, but it's there.

And FWIW the debug print in try_increment_pinned_vm is also racy.

This fixes all that. It doesn't try to correct the negative pinned_vm as the
old code did because it's already a bug and adjusting the value by the negative
amount seems to do nothing but make debugging harder.

If it's ok, I'll respin the whole series this way (another point for common
helper)
