mm_for_maps: simplify, use ptrace_may_access()
It would be nice to kill __ptrace_may_access(). It requires task_lock(), but this lock is only needed to read mm->flags in the middle. Convert mm_for_maps() to use ptrace_may_access(), this also simplifies the code a little bit. Also, we do not need to take ->mmap_sem in advance. In fact I think mm_for_maps() should not play with ->mmap_sem at all, the caller should take this lock. With or without this patch, without ->cred_guard_mutex held we can race with exec() and get the new ->mm but check old creds.
