Subject[PATCH] mm: get_cmdline use arg_lock instead of mmap_sem
Date
The commit a3b609ef9f8b ("proc read mm's {arg,env}_{start,end} with mmap
semaphore taken.") added synchronization of reading argument/environment
boundaries under mmap_sem. Later commit 88aa7cc688d4 ("mm: introduce
arg_lock to protect arg_start|end and env_start|end in mm_struct")
avoided the coarse use of mmap_sem in similar situations.

get_cmdline can also use arg_lock instead of mmap_sem when it reads the
boundaries.
