By replacing, we would reduce the use of 'global' current on code,
relying more in the contents of kvm struct.

On code, I found that in kvm_create_vm() there is:
kvm->mm = current->mm;

And that on every kvm_*_ioctl we have tests like that:
if (kvm->mm != current->mm)
        return -EIO;

So this change would be safe.

Also, I fixed a possible 'use after free' of kvm variable in
kvm_vm_ioctl_create_spapr_tce, where it does a mutex_unlock(&kvm->lock)
after a kvm_put_kvm(kvm).

Changes since v1:
- Fixes possible 'use after free' on kvm_spapr_tce_release (from v1)
- Fixes possible 'use after free' on kvm_vm_ioctl_create_spapr_tce
- Fixes undeclared variable error
