x86: mm: avoid allocating struct mm_struct on the stack
struct mm_struct is quite large (~1664 bytes) and so allocating on the stack may cause problems as the kernel stack size is small. Since ptdump_walk_pgd_level_core() was only allocating the structure so that it could modify the pgd argument we can instead introduce a pgd override in struct mm_walk and pass this down the call stack to where it is needed. Since the correct mm_struct is now being passed down, it is now also unnecessary to take the mmap_sem semaphore because ptdump_walk_pgd() will now take the semaphore on the real mm.
