Default mm: Hold a file reference in madvise_remove

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net>

CVE-2012-3511

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1042447

Otherwise the code races with munmap (causing a use-after-free
of the vma) or with close (causing a use-after-free of the struct
file).

The bug was introduced by commit 90ed52ebe481 ("[PATCH] holepunch: fix
mmap_sem i_mutex deadlock")

Just a minor nit here: for older versions it's still vmtruncate_range,
so perhaps the comment could be kept as:

"vmtruncate_range needs to take i_mutex and i_alloc_sem. We need to..."

but it doesn't change the result, just noted this. In any case Ack on
the backport.
