nommu: fix race between ramfs truncation and shared mmap
Fix the race between the truncation of a ramfs file and an attempt to make a shared mmap of region of that file. The problem is that do_mmap_pgoff() calls f_op->get_unmapped_area() to verify that the file region is made of contiguous pages and to find its base address - but there isn't any locking to guarantee this region until vma_prio_tree_insert() is called by add_vma_to_mm(). Note that moving the functionality into f_op->mmap() doesn't help as that is also called before vma_prio_tree_insert(). Instead make ramfs_nommu_check_mappings() grab nommu_region_sem whilst it does its checks. This means that this function will wait whilst mmaps take place.
