Subject[PATCH v5 6/7] mm/madvise: employ mmget_still_valid for write lock
Date
From: Oleksandr Natalenko <oleksandr@redhat.com>

Do the very same trick as we already do since 04f5866e41fb. KSM hints
will require locking mmap_sem for write since they modify vm_flags, so
for remote KSM hinting this additional check is needed.
