Aside of that in case of get_unmapped_area:

If va_unmapped_area() fails, then the address and the len which caused the
overlap check to trigger are handed in to arch_get_unmapped_area(), which
again can create an invalid mapping if I'm not missing something.

If mappings which overlap the boundary are invalid then we have to make
sure at all ends that they wont happen.
