Oh, and I just realized: moving this to <linux/mm.h> means that this
patch could/should also get rid of

- manual copy of this in mm/hugetlb.c:

cow = (vma->vm_flags & (VM_SHARED | VM_MAYWRITE)) == VM_MAYWRITE;

- private #define for the same thing in fs/proc/task_mmu.c

#define is_cow_mapping(flags) (((flags) & (VM_SHARED |
VM_MAYWRITE)) == VM_MAYWRITE)

- manual copy in drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_page_dirty.c:

bool is_cow_mapping =
(vma->vm_flags & (VM_SHARED | VM_MAYWRITE)) == VM_MAYWRITE;

I guess it could be a later cleanup patch too, but maybe best done in
this series just to not forget about it.
