Subject[PATCH 3.16 116/136] staging: android: ashmem: fix a race condition in ASHMEM_SET_SIZE ioctl
3.16.54-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Viktor Slavkovic <viktors@google.com>

commit 443064cb0b1fb4569fe0a71209da7625129fb760 upstream.

A lock-unlock is missing in ASHMEM_SET_SIZE ioctl which can result in a
race condition when mmap is called. After the !asma->file check, before
setting asma->size, asma->file can be set in mmap. That would result in
having different asma->size than the mapped memory size. Combined with
ASHMEM_UNPIN ioctl and shrinker invocation, this can result in memory
corruption.
