procfs task exe symlink
The kernel implements readlink of /proc/pid/exe by getting the file from the first executable VMA. Then the path to the file is reconstructed and reported as the result. Because of the VMA walk the code is slightly different on nommu systems. This patch avoids separate /proc/pid/exe code on nommu systems. Instead of walking the VMAs to find the first executable file-backed VMA we store a reference to the exec'd file in the mm_struct. That reference would prevent the filesystem holding the executable file from being unmounted even after unmapping the VMAs. So we track the number of VM_EXECUTABLE VMAs and drop the new reference when the last one is unmapped. This avoids pinning the mounted filesystem.
