Subject[PATCH] mm: use mm.arg_lock in get_cmdline()
Date
The commit 88aa7cc688d4 ("mm: introduce arg_lock to protect arg_start|end
and env_start|end in mm_struct") introduce the spinlock arg_lock to protect
the arg_* and env_* field of the mm_struct structure.

While reading the code, I found that this new spinlock was not used in
get_cmdline() to protect access to these fields.

Fixing this even if there is no issue reported yet for this.

Fixes: 88aa7cc688d4 ("mm: introduce arg_lock to protect arg_start|end and env_start|end in mm_struct")
