The the sole purpose of actually having that list is the above linear
was to test if we've already had this one?

Does that really matter? After all, if the probe is already installed
installing it again will return with -EEXIST, which should be easy
enough to deal with.

weird place for the INIT_LIST_HEAD, I would have expected it near where
the rest of vi is initialized, although it looks to be superfluous
anyway, since list_add() can handle an uninitialized entry.

Here we hold neither i_mmap_mutex nor mmap_sem, so everything can change
under our feet. See below..

No validation if its indeed the same vma you found earlier? At the very
least we should validate the vma returned from find_vma() is indeed a
mapping of the inode we're after and that the offset is still to be
found at vaddr.

Right, so you already deal with -EEXIST, so why do we need that list at
all then?

Aah, its to make fwd progress, without it we would keep retrying the
same vma over and over,.. hmm?
