I don't know for sure but I think it should be fine. That code is just
there to handle CRIU unmapping/remapping the VDSO. So that either needs
to happen while the process is stopped or it needs to handle races
anyway, so I don't see how the placement within the unmap path should
matter.

Yeah looks pretty suspicious. I'll follow-up with Laurent who wrote it.
Thanks for spotting it!

cheers
