mm: unify module_alloc code for vmalloc
Four architectures (arm, mips, sparc, x86) use __vmalloc_area() for module_init(). Much of the code is duplicated and can be generalized in a globally accessible function, __vmalloc_node_range(). __vmalloc_node() now calls into __vmalloc_node_range() with a range of [VMALLOC_START, VMALLOC_END) for functionally equivalent behavior. Each architecture may then use __vmalloc_node_range() directly to remove the duplication of code.
