Ok, I reproduced the bug on x86-32 and here is a fix.

I reproduced the bug on x86-32 host with mem=512M boot option.

As I expected, the bug is from holes in vmalloc area.
(This hole means thera are a memory hole withing [start ...start+size-PAGE_SIZE)
of valid vm_struct.)

For review, I divided all into 3 patches. all series will be reply to this email.

Thanks,
-Kame
