Subject: [PATCH v2 03/10] x86_64,vsyscall: Turn vsyscalls all the way off when vsyscall=none

I see no point in having an unusable read-only page sitting at
0xffffffffff600000 when vsyscall=none.  Instead, skip mapping it and
remove it from /proc/PID/maps.

I kept the ratelimited warning when programs try to use a vsyscall
in this mode, since it may help admins avoid confusion.
