> elf_core_dump should call down_write to prevent concurrent expand_stack
expand_stack doesn't need the write sem, see the locking comments in the
00_silent-stack-overflow patch in -aa.

> walks the page tables without locking). I'll check the other coredump
Also expand_stack needs the page_table_lock, that's ok.
> I'll write a patch that moves the locking into the coredump handlers,
> then we can compare that with Andrea's proposal.
