rmap: fix walk during fork

The below bug in fork led to the rmap walk finding the parent huge-pmd
twice instead of just once, because the anon_vma_chain objects of the
child vma still point to the vma->vm_mm of the parent.

The patch fixes it by making the rmap walk accurate during fork. It's not
a big deal normally but it worth being accurate considering the cost is
the same.
