Subject[117/136] /proc/kcore: work around a BUG()

2.6.31-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com>
Not upstream due to other fixes in .32


Works around a BUG() which is triggered when the kernel accesses holes in
vmalloc regions.

To access vmalloc area which may have memory holes, copy_from_user is
useful. So this:

# cat /proc/kcore > /dev/null
will not panic.

This is a minimal fix, suitable for 2.6.30.x and 2.6.31. More extensive
/proc/kcore changes are planned for 2.6.32.
