nfsd: fix vm overcommit crash fix #2
Junjiro R. Okajima [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 18:31:46 +0000 (10:31 -0800)]
The previous patch from Alan Cox ("nfsd: fix vm overcommit crash",
commit 731572d39fcd3498702eda4600db4c43d51e0b26) fixed the problem where
knfsd crashes on exported shmemfs objects and strict overcommit is set.

But the patch forgot supporting the case when CONFIG_SECURITY is
disabled.

This patch copies a part of his fix which is mainly for detecting a bug
earlier.
