parentmm: mmap: fix fput in error path v2 (diff)
mm: introduce vma_set_file function v4
Add the new vma_set_file() function to allow changing vma->vm_file with the necessary refcount dance. v2: add more users of this. v3: add missing EXPORT_SYMBOL, rebase on mmap cleanup, add comments why we drop the reference on two occasions. v4: make it clear that changing an anonymous vma is illegal.
