Only in 2.4.9aa2: 00_silent-stack-overflow-5
Only in 2.4.9aa3: 00_silent-stack-overflow-6

        Updated to run expand_stack always with the mm write semaphore acquired
        to fix the race conditions. Upgrading the semaphore during
        map_user_kiobuf was quite painful so I just disallowed to do direct I/O
        on a growsdown VMA (you can still do that as far as it doesn't need to
        be live extended on the fly).

Only in 2.4.9aa3: 00_vm_raend-race-1

        Sanitize the vm_raend field before trusting it, such field is racy.

Only in 2.4.9aa2: 10_expand-stack-smp-1

        Dropped (it wasn't needed).

Only in 2.4.9aa2: 70_mmap-rb-4
Only in 2.4.9aa3: 70_mmap-rb-5

        Backed out a few unnecessary minor changes.
