Subject[PATCH v11 15/19] mm: vmalloc: add flag preventing guard hole allocation
Date
For instrumenting global variables KASan will shadow memory
backing memory for modules. So on module loading we will need
to allocate memory for shadow and map it at address in shadow
that corresponds to the address allocated in module_alloc().

__vmalloc_node_range() could be used for this purpose,
except it puts a guard hole after allocated area. Guard hole
in shadow memory should be a problem because at some future
point we might need to have a shadow memory at address
occupied by guard hole. So we could fail to allocate shadow
for module_alloc().

Add a new vm_struct flag 'VM_NO_GUARD' indicating that vm area
doesn't have a guard hole.
