Thanks for that, it clearly shows the virtual address allocator
is allowing an overlapping allocation after a vm_unmap_aliases()
call. Unfortunately, my "random" test case happened not to
trigger that... I should have paid more attention to edge cases
rather than just random testing.

Anyway, I hope this fix should solve the problem for you? (it
fixes it here)
