mm: don't overwrite mm->def_flags in do_mlockall()
With commit 8e72033f2a48 ("thp: make MADV_HUGEPAGE check for mm->def_flags") the VM_NOHUGEPAGE flag may be set on s390 in mm->def_flags for certain processes, to prevent future thp mappings. This would be overwritten by do_mlockall(), which sets it back to 0 with an optional VM_LOCKED flag set. To fix this, instead of overwriting mm->def_flags in do_mlockall(), only the VM_LOCKED flag should be set or cleared.
