Subject[PATCH v2] mm/vmalloc.c: clean up map_vm_area third argument
Date
Currently map_vm_area() takes (struct page *** pages) as third argument,
and after mapping, it moves (*pages) to point to (*pages + nr_mappped_pages).

It looks like this kind of increment is useless to its caller these
days. The callers don't care about the increments and actually they're
trying to avoid this by passing another copy to map_vm_area().

The caller can always guarantee all the pages can be mapped into
vm_area as specified in first argument and the caller only cares about
whether map_vm_area() fails or not.

This patch cleans up the pointer movement in map_vm_area() and updates
its callers accordingly.

v2: Fix arch/tile/kernel/module.c::module_alloc().
