userfaultfd: shmem: handle coredumping in handle_userfault()
Anon and hugetlbfs handle FOLL_DUMP set by get_dump_page() internally to __get_user_pages(). shmem as opposed has no special FOLL_DUMP handling there so handle_mm_fault() is invoked without mmap_sem and ends up calling handle_userfault() that isn't expecting to be invoked without mmap_sem held. This makes handle_userfault() fail immediately if invoked through shmem_vm_ops->fault during coredumping and solves the problem. The side effect is a BUG_ON with no lock held triggered by the coredumping process which exits. Only 4.11 is affected, pre-4.11 anon memory holes are skipped in __get_user_pages by checking FOLL_DUMP explicitly against empty pagetables (mm/gup.c:no_page_table()). It's zero cost as we already had a check for current->flags to prevent futex to trigger userfaults during exit (PF_EXITING).
