pagemap: check permissions and capabilities at open time
This patchset makes pagemap useable again in the safe way (after row hammer bug it was made CAP_SYS_ADMIN-only). This patchset restores access for non-privileged users but hides PFNs from them. Also it adds bit 'map-exclusive' which is set if page is mapped only here: it helps in estimation of working set without exposing pfns and allows to distinguish CoWed and non-CoWed private anonymous pages. Second patch removes page-shift bits and completes migration to the new pagemap format: flags soft-dirty and mmap-exclusive are available only in the new format. This patch (of 5): This patch moves permission checks from pagemap_read() into pagemap_open(). Pointer to mm is saved in file->private_data. This reference pins only mm_struct itself. /proc/*/mem, maps, smaps already work in the same way.
