Subject[PATCH] mm/vmalloc: Sanitize __get_vm_area() arguments

__get_vm_area() is an exported symbol, make sure the callers stay in
the expected memory range. When calling this function with memory
ranges outside of the VMALLOC range *bad* things can happen.

(I noticed this when I managed to corrupt the kernel text by accident)
