Subject[PATCH] mm: add VM_STATIC flag to vmalloc and prevent from removing the areas
Date
vm_area_add_early/vm_area_register_early() are used to reserve vmalloc area
during boot process and those virtually mapped areas are never unmapped.
So `OR` VM_STATIC flag to the areas in vmalloc_init() when importing
existing vmlist entries and prevent those areas from being removed from the
rbtree by accident.
