Subject: [PATCH v3] mmap_vmcore: skip non-ram pages reported by hypervisors

We have a special check in read_vmcore() handler to check if the page was
reported as ram or not by the hypervisor (pfn_is_ram()). However, when
vmcore is read with mmap() no such check is performed. That can lead to
unpredictable results, e.g. when running Xen PVHVM guest memcpy() after
mmap() on /proc/vmcore will hang processing HVMMEM_mmio_dm pages creating
enormous load in both DomU and Dom0.

Fix the issue by mapping each non-ram page to the zero page. Keep direct
path with remap_oldmem_pfn_range() to avoid looping through all pages on
bare metal.

The issue can also be solved by overriding remap_oldmem_pfn_range() in
xen-specific code, as remap_oldmem_pfn_range() was been designed for.
That, however, would involve non-obvious xen code path for all x86 builds
with CONFIG_XEN_PVHVM=y and would prevent all other hypervisor-specific
code on x86 arch from doing the same override.

Changes from v2:
- make remap_oldmem_pfn_checked() interface exactly match
  remap_oldmem_pfn_range()
- unmap mapped part inside remap_oldmem_pfn_checked() in case of failure so
  we don't need to take care of it in mmap_vmcore()
- create vmcore_remap_oldmem_pfn() wrapper

Changes from v1:
- comment style changes
- change remap_oldmem_pfn_checked() interface to closer match the
  remap_oldmem_pfn() interface
- preserve formal parameters within the loop, make the loop conditions
  easier to understand
- use my_zero_pfn() for the zero page
- return remapped length instead of new offset
