mm: remove VM_LOCK_RMAP code
When a VMA is in an inconsistent state during setup or teardown, the worst that can happen is that the rmap code will not be able to find the page. The mapping is in the process of being torn down (PTEs just got invalidated by munmap), or set up (no PTEs have been instantiated yet). It is also impossible for the rmap code to follow a pointer to an already freed VMA, because the rmap code holds the anon_vma->lock, which the VMA teardown code needs to take before the VMA is removed from the anon_vma chain. Hence, we should not need the VM_LOCK_RMAP locking at all.
