This looks like the merging error, I guess this code should go into
sys_prct(), not k_getrusage().


The patch adds mm_struct->arg_lock mutex. Can't we reuse mm->mmap_sem?
A bit ugly to have mm->arg_lock just to synchronize sys_prctl() and
proc_pid_cmdline(), imho.

Yes, we can't do access_process_vm() under ->mmap_sem, but we can add
the new helper, say, access_process_vm_locked(tsk, mm, ...) which does
the actual work. Then proc_pid_cmdline() can take mmap_sem for reading,
read arg_start/arg_end and call access_process_vm_locked().

No?

Oleg.
