alpha: fix vmalloc breakage
On alpha, we have to map some stuff in the VMALLOC space very early in the boot process (to make SRM console callbacks work and so on, see arch/alpha/mm/init.c). For old VM allocator, we just manually placed a vm_struct onto the global vmlist and this worked for ages. Unfortunately, the new allocator isn't aware of this, so it constantly tries to allocate the VM space which is already in use, making vmalloc on alpha defunct. This patch forces KVA to import vmlist entries on init.
