mm: always lock the root (oldest) anon_vma



Always (and only) lock the root (oldest) anon_vma whenever we do something
in an anon_vma.  The recently introduced anon_vma scalability is due to
the rmap code scanning only the VMAs that need to be scanned.  Many common
operations still took the anon_vma lock on the root anon_vma, so always
taking that lock is not expected to introduce any scalability issues.

However, always taking the same lock does mean we only need to take one
lock, which means rmap_walk on pages from any anon_vma in the vma is
excluded from occurring during an munmap, expand_stack or other operation
that needs to exclude rmap_walk and similar functions.

Also add the proper locking to vma_adjust.
