mm: ensure get_unmapped_area() returns higher address than mmap_min_addr
This patch fixes the problem that get_unmapped_area() can return illegal address and result in failing mmap(2) etc. In case that the address higher than PAGE_SIZE is set to /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr, the address lower than mmap_min_addr can be returned by get_unmapped_area(), even if you do not pass any virtual address hint (i.e. the second argument). This is because the current get_unmapped_area() code does not take into account mmap_min_addr. This leads to two actual problems as follows: 1. mmap(2) can fail with EPERM on the process without CAP_SYS_RAWIO, although any illegal parameter is not passed. 2. The bottom-up search path after the top-down search might not work in arch_get_unmapped_area_topdown(). Note: The first and third chunk of my patch, which changes "len" check, are for more precise check using mmap_min_addr, and not for solving the above problem.
