Subject: [PATCH] hugetlbfs: Add new rw_semaphore to fix truncate/read race

From: "Aneesh Kumar K.V" <aneesh.kumar@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

Drop using inode->i_mutex from read, since that can result in deadlock with
mmap. Ideally we can extend the patch to make sure we don't increase i_size
in mmap. But that will break userspace, because application will have to now
use truncate(2) to increase i_size in hugetlbfs.

AFAIU i_mutex was added in hugetlbfs_read as per
http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.2/3066.html
