I borrowed the code from vm_unmap_ram(), which has the following checks:

BUG_ON(!addr);
BUG_ON(addr < VMALLOC_START);
BUG_ON(addr > VMALLOC_END);
BUG_ON(!PAGE_ALIGNED(addr));
[...]
va = find_vmap_area(addr);
BUG_ON(!va);

The expectation here is that inputs to vm_unmap_ram() should always come from
vm_map_ram(), so an erroneous input is an internal kernel bug. I applied the
same logic to vm_unmap_user_ram() and vm_map_user_ram().

Should we turn all those BUG_ON() into if (WARN_ON(x)) return; in vm_{map,unmap}_ram
as well ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
