Subject[PATCH v2] 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. This flags can be also used by other vmalloc APIs to
specify that the area will never go away.
This makes remove_vm_area() more robust against other kind of errors (eg.
programming errors).

v2:
- update changelog
- add description to VM_STATIC
- check VM_STATIC first before VM_VM_AREA in remove_vm_area()
