Subject[PATCH 3.2 55/59] x86/mm/32: Set the '__vmalloc_start_set' flag in initmem_init()
3.2.92-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Laura Abbott <labbott@redhat.com>

commit 861ce4a3244c21b0af64f880d5bfe5e6e2fb9e4a upstream.

'__vmalloc_start_set' currently only gets set in initmem_init() when
!CONFIG_NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES. This breaks detection of vmalloc address
with virt_addr_valid() with CONFIG_NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES=y, causing
a kernel crash:

[mm/usercopy] 517e1fbeb6: kernel BUG at arch/x86/mm/physaddr.c:78!

Set '__vmalloc_start_set' appropriately for that case as well.
