Subject: [PATCH 04/11] ipc,shm: introduce shmctl_nolock

Similar to semctl and msgctl, when calling msgctl, the *_INFO and *_STAT commands
can be performed without acquiring the ipc object.

Add a shmctl_nolock() function and move the logic of *_INFO and *_STAT out of
msgctl(). Since we are just moving functionality, this change still takes the
lock and it will be properly lockless in the next patch.
