SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm: get_cmdline use arg_lock instead of mmap_sem

Correct. The patch alone just moves the race from
get_cmdline/prctl_set_mm_map to get_cmdline/prctl_set_mm.

arg_lock could be used in prctl_set_mm but the better idea (IMO) is
complete removal of that code in favor of prctl_set_mm_map [1].
