proc: do not access cmdline nor environ from file-backed areas
proc_pid_cmdline_read() and environ_read() directly access the target process' VM to retrieve the command line and environment. If this process remaps these areas onto a file via mmap(), the requesting process may experience various issues such as extra delays if the underlying device is slow to respond. Let's simply refuse to access file-backed areas in these functions. For this we add a new FOLL_ANON gup flag that is passed to all calls to access_remote_vm(). The code already takes care of such failures (including unmapped areas). Accesses via /proc/pid/mem were not changed though. This was assigned CVE-2018-1120. Note for stable backports: the patch may apply to kernels prior to 4.11 but silently miss one location; it must be checked that no call to access_remote_vm() keeps zero as the last argument.
