[PATCH v7 4/8] vmalloc: make find_vm_area check in range

From: HATAYAMA Daisuke
Date: Tue May 21 2013 - 22:56:07 EST

Currently, __find_vmap_area searches for the kernel VM area starting
at a given address. This patch changes this behavior so that it
searches for the kernel VM area to which the address belongs. This
change is needed by remap_vmalloc_range_partial to be introduced in
later patch that receives any position of kernel VM area as target

This patch changes the condition (addr > va->va_start) to the
equivalent (addr >= va->va_end) by taking advantage of the fact that
each kernel VM area is non-overlapping.
