Thanks for CC'ing, Oleg. I think if thise series go in it won't
be a problem to update my patch accordingly.

In this patch I leave mm->exe_file lockless.
After exec/fork we can change it only for current task and only if mm->mm_users == 1.

something like this:

task_lock(current);
if (atomic_read(&current->mm->mm_users) == 1)
	set_mm_exe_file(current->mm, new_file);
else
	ret = -EBUSY;
task_unlock(current);

task_lock() protect this code against get_task_mm()
