mm: tiny-shmem fix lock ordering: mmap_sem vs i_mutex
Nick Piggin [Mon, 22 Sep 2008 20:57:50 +0000 (13:57 -0700)]
tiny-shmem calls do_truncate in shmem_file_setup.  do_truncate takes
i_mutex, and shmem_file_setup is called with mmap_sem held.  However
i_mutex nests outside mmap_sem.

Copy the code in shmem.c to avoid this problem.
