Subject[PATCH] alpha: fix vmalloc breakage
On alpha, we have to map some stuff in the VMALLOC space very
early in the boot process (to make SRM console callbacks work
and so on, see arch/alpha/mm/init.c). For old VM allocator,
we just manually placed a vm_struct onto the global vmlist
and this worked for ages.
Unfortunately, the new allocator isn't aware of this, so it constantly
tries to allocate the VM space which is already in use, making vmalloc
on alpha defunct.

This patch forces KVA to import vmlist entries on init.
