Subject: [PATCH 2/2] android: binder: Don't get mm from task

Use binder_alloc struct's mm_struct rather than getting
a reference to the mm struct through get_task_mm to
avoid a potential deadlock between lru lock, task lock and
dentry lock, since a thread can be holding the task lock
and the dentry lock while trying to acquire the lru lock.
