fs/proc: Stop trying to report thread stacks
commit b18cb64ead400c01bf1580eeba330ace51f8087d upstream. This reverts more of: b76437579d13 ("procfs: mark thread stack correctly in proc/<pid>/maps") ... which was partially reverted by: 65376df58217 ("proc: revert /proc/<pid>/maps [stack:TID] annotation") Originally, /proc/PID/task/TID/maps was the same as /proc/TID/maps. In current kernels, /proc/PID/maps (or /proc/TID/maps even for threads) shows "[stack]" for VMAs in the mm's stack address range. In contrast, /proc/PID/task/TID/maps uses KSTK_ESP to guess the target thread's stack's VMA. This is racy, probably returns garbage and, on arches with CONFIG_TASK_INFO_IN_THREAD=y, is also crash-prone: KSTK_ESP is not safe to use on tasks that aren't known to be running ordinary process-context kernel code. This patch removes the difference and just shows "[stack]" for VMAs in the mm's stack range. This is IMO much more sensible -- the actual "stack" address really is treated specially by the VM code, and the current thread stack isn't even well-defined for programs that frequently switch stacks on their own.

The /proc/PID/smaps is an extension based on maps, showing the memory
consumption for each of the process's mappings. For each of mappings there
is a series of lines such as the following:
