Subject: [PATCH v2 2/3] exec: delay clone(CLONE_FILES) if task associated with current files_struct is exec'ing

In a later patch, we're going to move the unshare_files call in
__do_execve_file to later in the process, but this opens up a potential
race with clone(CLONE_FILES). We could end up bumping the refcount on
the files_struct after we've checked to see if it was shared. What we
really want to do in that case is have the clone return -EAGAIN, much
like the handling of the similar situation in copy_fs.

Add a new in_exec boolean to files_struct that is protected by the
file_lock. Set it if the files_struct turns out not to be shared, and
clear at the end of __do_execve_file. If it's set when we go to
copy_process, then just return -EAGAIN.
