Subject: [PATCH 1/5] fs/proc/task_mmu.c: kill the suboptimal and confusing
	m->version logic

m_start() carefully documents, checks, and sets "m->version = -1" if
we are going to return NULL. The only problem is that we will be never
called again if m_start() returns NULL, so this is simply pointless
and misleading.

Otoh, ->show() methods m->version = 0 if vma == tail_vma and this is
just wrong, we want -1 in this case. And in fact we also want -1 if
->vm_next == NULL and ->tail_vma == NULL.

And it is not used consistently, the "scan vmas" loop in m_start()
should update last_addr too.

Finally, imo the whole "last_addr" logic in m_start() looks horrible.
find_vma(last_addr) is called unconditionally even if we are not going
to use the result. But the main problem is that this code participates
in tail_vma-or-NULL mess, and this looks simply unfixable.

Remove this optimization. We will add it back after some cleanups.
