In theory any existing caller of remap_vmalloc_range() which does
not have an explicit size check should trigger an oops, e.g. this is
a good candidate:

*** drivers/media/usb/stkwebcam/stk-webcam.c:
v4l_stk_mmap[789] ret = remap_vmalloc_range(vma,
sbuf->buffer, 0);

According to the code no explicit size check, should be easy to
reproduce:
mmap the frame buffer and you are done.

Other callers are not so easy to follow. But wait, here is another
example:

(drivers/video/fbdev/core/fbmem.c)
static int
fb_mmap(struct file *file, struct vm_area_struct * vma)
...
res = fb->fb_mmap(info, vma);

(drivers/video/fbdev/vfb.c)
static int vfb_mmap(struct fb_info *info,
struct vm_area_struct *vma)
{
return remap_vmalloc_range(vma, (void *)info->fix.smem_start,
vma->vm_pgoff);
}

No checks, naked calls, should be also the candidate.
