Some of the sites being replaced were effectively ensuring that vma and
pages were mutually compatible as an initial condition - would it be
worth adding something here for robustness, e.g.:

+ if (page_count != vma_pages(vma))
+ return -ENXIO;

?

(then you could also clean up a couple more places where you're not
already removing such checks)
