vmalloc_exec basically expands to the x86-64 version of that code, just
using VMALLOC_START/VMALLOC_END instead of MODULES_VADDR/MODULES_END.

So instead of having two variants it would be better to use the x86-64
unconditionally and define MODULES_VADDR/MODULES_END to
VMALLOC_START/VMALLOC_END to 32bit and uml.

And that part should be a patch of it's own, not mixed with others.
