Subject: [PATCH 3/3] mm: mmap_region: kill correct_wcount/inode, use
	allow_write_access()

correct_wcount and inode in mmap_region() just complicate the code.
This boolean was needed previously, when deny_write_access() was
called before vma_merge(), now we can simply check VM_DENYWRITE and
do allow_write_access() if it is set.

allow_write_access() checks file != NULL, so this is safe even if it
was possible to use VM_DENYWRITE && !file. Just we need to ensure we
use the same file which was deny_write_access()'ed, so the patch also
moves "file = vma->vm_file" down after allow_write_access().
