What if there isn't any free address space between vstart+voffset and
vend, but there is free address space between vstart and voffset?
Seems like we should add:

	addr = __alloc_vmap_area(size, align, vstart + voffset, vend);
+	if (!addr)
+		addr = __alloc_vmap_area(size, align, vstart, vend);
	spin_unlock(&free_vmap_area_lock);
