Subject[PATCH 2/3] procfs: Call default get_unmapped_area on MMU-present architectures
commit c4fe24485729fc2cbff324c111e67a1cc2f9adea added
proc_reg_get_unmapped_area in proc_reg_file_ops and
proc_reg_file_ops_no_compat, by which now mmap always returns EIO if
get_unmapped_area method is not defiend for the target procfs file,
which causes regression of mmap on /proc/vmcore.

To address this issue, like get_unmapped_area(), call default
current->mm->get_unmapped_area on MMU-present architectures if
pde->proc_fops->get_unmapped_area, i.e. the one in actual file
operation in the procfs file, is not defined.
