A review from a binder expert is definitely due but this function
clearly modifies the vma. Maybe the mapping is not really that important
because the coredump would simply not see the new mapping and therefore
"only" generate an incomplete/corrupted dump rather than leak an
information. I went with a "just to be sure" approach and add the check
to all locations which might be operating on a remote mm and modify the
address space.
