by the way, a slightly modified version of your patch, without this snippet:

@@ -362,7 +363,7 @@ retry:
goto found;
}
- while (addr + size >= first->va_start && addr + size <= vend) {
+ while (addr + size > first->va_start && addr + size <= vend) {
addr = ALIGN(first->va_end + PAGE_SIZE, align);
n = rb_next(&first->rb_node);


WFM nicely so far.
