shm: optimize exit_shm()
Vasiliy Kulikov [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 18:28:26 +0000 (22:28 +0400)]
We may optimistically check .in_use == 0 without holding the rw_mutex:
it's the common case, and if it's zero, there certainly won't be any
segments associated with us.

After taking the lock, the idr_for_each() will do the right thing, so we
could now drop the re-check inside the lock without any real cost.  But
it won't hurt.
