Hmm, then I wonder whether the next check against vm_start_gap() which
checks against the aligned address is correct:

                addr = PAGE_ALIGN(addr);
                vma = find_vma(mm, addr);

                if (end - len >= addr &&
                    (!vma || addr + len <= vm_start_gap(vma)))
                        return addr;

Thanks,
