Default natty/ti-omap4 CVE catchup

I was looking at the CVE matrix today and noted that there were CVEs
applied to natty/master but not to natty/ti-omap4; this branch is not a
rebase branch and so needs manual handling. I have prepared a branch
with the requisite commits cherry-picked from natty/master and marked
those which are not applicable to ARM not-affected in the tracker.
Pull request is below. Note that there are a couple of additional NFS
fixes included to allow application of the CVE, all are stable fixes and
all are cherry-picked from the natty/master branch.

Proposing for natty/ti-omap4.

Default natty/ti-omap4 CVE catchup

As we are uploading the last Natty kernels (baring critical CVEs) in this
cadance cycle I have just been reviewing the CVE matrix for these
kernels. It seems that a number of the recent CVEs were not applied to
the natty/ti-omap4 branch (which is _not_ a rebase branch). It seems
appropriate that natty/master and natty/ti-omap4 end up with the same
fixes (and flaws).

I have therefore pulled the missing commits and pushed them to the
natty/ti-omap4 repo. This consists of the commits below representing
3 CVEs:

a3e67ae mm: Hold a file reference in madvise_remove
47c94da sfc: Fix maximum number of TSO segments and minimum TX queue size
dc7496e sfc: Replace some literal constants with EFX_PAGE_SIZE/EFX_BUF_SIZE
e0cb62e tcp: Apply device TSO segment limit earlier
7accfd1 tcp: do not scale TSO segment size with reordering degree
ef9577d net: Allow driver to limit number of GSO segments per skb
a9a23ae KVM: unmap pages from the iommu when slots are removed

These are all commits as applied to and released or releasing for
