That is more about of using the same type of variables thus the same size
in 32/64 bit address space.

<snip>
static void free_vmap_area_noflush(struct vmap_area *va)
{
int nr_lazy;

nr_lazy = atomic_add_return((va->va_end - va->va_start) >> PAGE_SHIFT,
&vmap_lazy_nr);
...
if (unlikely(nr_lazy > lazy_max_pages()))
try_purge_vmap_area_lazy();
<snip>

va_end/va_start are "unsigned long" whereas atomit_t(vmap_lazy_nr) is "int".
The same with lazy_max_pages(), it returns "unsigned long" value.

Answering your question, in 64bit, the "vmalloc" address space is ~8589719406
pages if PAGE_SIZE is 4096, i.e. a regular 4 byte integer is not enough to hold
it. I agree it is hard to imagine, but it also depends on physical memory a
system has, it has to be terabytes. I am not sure if such systems exists.

Thank you.
