Subject: [RFC 25/43] mm: shmem: specify the mm to use when inserting pages

Explicitly specify the mm to pass to shmem_insert_page() when
the pkram_stream is initialized rather than use the mm of the
current thread.  This will allow for multiple kernel threads to
target the same mm when inserting pages in parallel.
