Your patch looks like a good fix to me, but I don't get how its bug
would manifest as highmem_32.c:115 - that's a check in kunmap_atomic(),
whereas you're fixing a bad address to kunmap().

I'd expect what you're fixing to manifest as an mm/highmem.c:207 -
the BUG_ON(!vaddr) in kunmap_high(). Or have I just got in a
terrible muddle?

Of course, I'd love it to explain mm/highmem.c:319,
but I can't see that either.
