SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 2/7] mm: Extend copy_vma()

This kind of changes requires a lot more explanation in commit message,
describing all possible corner cases.

For instance, I would really like to see a story on why logic around
need_rmap_locks is safe after the change.

Why is the new logic required? No justification given.

How can vma_merge() succeed if vma->vm_mm != mm?
