Subjectmunmap extremely slow even with untouched mapping.

This is going out without any testing. I got it to compile but never
even booted the kernel.

I noticed that on ia64, the following simple program would take 24
seconds to complete. Profiling revealed I was spending all that time
in unmap_vmas. Looking over the function, I noticed that I would only
attempt 8 pages at a time (CONFIG_PREMPT). I then thought through this
some more. My particular application had one large mapping which was
never touched after being mmaped.

Without this patch, we would iterate numerous times (256) to get past
a region of memory that had an empty pmd, 524,288 times to get past an
empty pud, and 1,073,741,824 to get past an empty pgd. I had a 4-level
page table directory patch applied at the time.

Here is the test program:

#include <fcntl.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#define TMPFILE "/tmp/holt-dummy-mmap"

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
int fd;
char *memmap_base;

fd = open(TMPFILE, O_RDWR | O_CREAT | O_EXCL, 0600);
if (fd < 0) {
printf("Error opening " TMPFILE "\n");
exit(1);
}
unlink(TMPFILE);

memmap_base = (char *) mmap(NULL, 17592182882304,
PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE,
MAP_SHARED, fd,
(off_t) 0);

if ((void *) memmap_base != MAP_FAILED)
munmap(memmap_base, 17592182882304);
return 0;
}
