Let me fast answer on the below question firstly, and later I'll write
wide explanations, since this requires much more time.

Ditto.

We don't use vma as an argument of vma_merge(). We use vma as a source of
vma->anon_vma, vma->vm_file and vma_policy().

We search some new_vma in mm with the same characteristics as vma has in vma->vm_mm.
In case of success vma_merge() returns it for us. For example, it may success, when
vma->vm_mm is mm_struct of forked process, while mm is mm_struct of its parent.
