Subject[patch 21/47] Change vmalloc defintions
From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com>

Currently the vmalloc area starts at a dynamic address depending on
the memory size. There was also an 8MB security hole after the
physical memory to catch out-of-bounds accesses.
We can simplify the code by putting the vmalloc area explicitely at
the top of the kernel mapping and setting the vmalloc size to a fixed
value of 128MB/128GB for 31bit/64bit systems. Part of the vmalloc
area will be used for the vmem_map. This leaves an area of 96MB/1GB
for normal vmalloc allocations.
