Unfortunately, I can't see how doing this in another way since vma = new_vma is
done in the error branch.
So releasing the VMAs outside of the conditional may lead to miss 'vma' if the
error branch is taken.

Here is the code snippet as a reminder:

new_vma = copy_vma(&vma, new_addr, new_len, new_pgoff,
&need_rmap_locks);
[...]
if (vma != new_vma)
vm_raw_write_begin(vma);
[...]
if (unlikely(err)) {
[...]
if (vma != new_vma)
vm_raw_write_end(vma);
vma = new_vma; <<<< here we lost reference to vma
[...]
} else {
[...]
if (vma != new_vma)
vm_raw_write_end(vma);
}
vm_raw_write_end(new_vma);
