mm: delete historical BUG from zap_pmd_range()
Delete the old VM_BUG_ON_VMA() from zap_pmd_range(), which asserted that mmap_sem must be held when splitting an "anonymous" vma there. Whether that's still strictly true nowadays is not entirely clear, but the danger of sometimes crashing on the BUG is now fairly clear. Even with the new stricter rules for anonymous vma marking, the condition it checks for can possible trigger. Commit 44960f2a7b63 ("staging: ashmem: Fix SIGBUS crash when traversing mmaped ashmem pages") is good, and originally I thought it was safe from that VM_BUG_ON_VMA(), because the /dev/ashmem fd exposed to the user is disconnected from the vm_file in the vma, and madvise(,,MADV_REMOVE) insists on VM_SHARED. But after I read John's earlier mail, drawing attention to the vfs_fallocate() in there: I may be wrong, and I don't know if Android has THP in the config anyway, but it looks to me like an unmap_mapping_range() from ashmem's vfs_fallocate() could hit precisely the VM_BUG_ON_VMA(), once it's vma_is_anonymous().
