No problem.

Sorry, that part was intended for other patch regardless of this patchset but
squeezed into this version by my mistake. I wanted to remove those part
from madvise_free because currently madvise_free is always done in current context.
I will drop it in next revision since it's not related to this patchset.

As Jann pointed out, we couldn't use task->mm once we verified it via
access_mm. However, I believe vma->vm_mm is safe(Ccing Jann for double
check).
