Well I can kind of see what this is doing - it increases the amount of
info in /proc/vmallocinfo for regions which were created by
vm_map_area(), yes?

But I'd like to hear it in your words, please. What problem are we
trying to solve? Why is it actually a problem? Why is the additional
information considered useful, etc?

It would help a lot if the changelog were to include before-and-after
examples from the /proc/vmallocinfo output.
