[PATCH 02/10] Introduce mm_has_pending_aio() helper

From: Nathan Lynch <ntl at pobox.com>

Support for AIO is on the to-do list, but until that is implemented,
checkpoint will have to fail if a mm_struct has outstanding AIO
contexts.  Add a mm_has_pending_aio() helper function for this
purpose.

Based on original "check_for_outstanding_aio" patch by Serge Hallyn.

[ntl: changed name and return type to clearly express semantics]
[ntl: added kerneldoc]
