exec: make argv/envp memory visible to oom-killer
Brad Spengler published a local memory-allocation DoS that evades the OOM-killer (though not the virtual memory RLIMIT): http://www.grsecurity.net/~spender/64bit_dos.c execve()->copy_strings() can allocate a lot of memory, but this is not visible to oom-killer, nobody can see the nascent bprm->mm and take it into account. With this patch get_arg_page() increments current's MM_ANONPAGES counter every time we allocate the new page for argv/envp. When do_execve() succeds or fails, we change this counter back. Technically this is not 100% correct, we can't know if the new page is swapped out and turn MM_ANONPAGES into MM_SWAPENTS, but I don't think this really matters and everything becomes correct once exec changes ->mm or fails.
