Subject[PATCH, RFC 21/62] mm/rmap: Clear vma->anon_vma on unlink_anon_vmas()
Date
If all pages in the VMA got unmapped there's no reason to link it into
original anon VMA hierarchy: it cannot possibly share any pages with
other VMA.

Set vma->anon_vma to NULL on unlink_anon_vmas(). With the change VMA
can be reused. The new anon VMA will be allocated on the first fault.
