Subject: [PATCH 02/11] mm: call import_iovec() instead of rw_copy_check_uvector() in process_vm_rw()

From: David Laight <David.Laight@...LAB.COM>

This is the only direct call of rw_copy_check_uvector().  Removing it
will allow rw_copy_check_uvector() to be inlined into import_iovec(),
while only paying a minor price by setting up an otherwise unused
iov_iter in the process_vm_readv/process_vm_writev syscalls that aren't
in a super hot path.

[hch: expanded the commit log, pass CHECK_IOVEC_ONLY instead of 0 for the
      compat case, handle CHECK_IOVEC_ONLY in iov_iter_init]
