Subject: [PATCH 1/4] pagewalk: Fix walk_page_range() don't check find_vma()
 result properly

The doc of find_vma() says,

    /* Look up the first VMA which satisfies  addr < vm_end,  NULL if none. */
    struct vm_area_struct *find_vma(struct mm_struct *mm, unsigned long addr)

Thus, caller should confirm whether the returned vma matches a desired one.
