nfsd: fix vm overcommit crash
Junjiro R. Okajima reported a problem where knfsd crashes if you are using it to export shmemfs objects and run strict overcommit. In this situation the current->mm based modifier to the overcommit goes through a NULL pointer. We could simply check for NULL and skip the modifier but we've caught other real bugs in the past from mm being NULL here - cases where we did need a valid mm set up (eg the exec bug about a year ago). To preserve the checks and get the logic we want shuffle the checking around and add a new helper to the vm_ security wrappers Also fix a current->mm reference in nommu that should use the passed mm [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix build] Reported-by: Junjiro R.
