OK. To me the code looks better/simpler with "if (ctx)", but this is subjective
of course, I won't argue.

The patch still removes the empty line between mmap_size = 0 and kill_ioctx(),
we reset mmap_size only for kill_ioctx(). But feel free to remove this change.

Subject: [PATCH v3 1/2] aio: change exit_aio() to load mm->ioctx_table once and avoid rcu_read_lock()

1. We can read ->ioctx_table only once and we do not read rcu_read_lock()
   or even rcu_dereference().

   This mm has no users, nobody else can play with ->ioctx_table. Otherwise
   the code is buggy anyway, if we need rcu_read_lock() in a loop because
   ->ioctx_table can be updated then kfree(table) is obviously wrong.

2. Update the comment. "exit_mmap(mm) is coming" is the good reason to avoid
   munmap(), but another reason is that we simply can't do vm_munmap() unless
   current->mm == mm and this is not true in general, the caller is mmput().

3. We do not really need to nullify mm->ioctx_table before return, probably
   the current code does this to catch the potential problems. But in this
   case RCU_INIT_POINTER(NULL) looks better.
