mm: make the mlock() stack guard page checks stricter
If we've split the stack vma, only the lowest one has the guard page. Now that we have a doubly linked list of vma's, checking this is trivial. Tested-by: Ian Campbell <ijc@hellion.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
