Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] not adding modules range to kcore if it's equal to
 vmcore range

On some ARCHs modules range is eauql to vmalloc range. E.g on i686
"#define MODULES_VADDR   VMALLOC_START"
"#define MODULES_END     VMALLOC_END"
This will cause 2 duplicate program segments in /proc/kcore, makes
user confused. In this patch a judgment added to check if modules
range is equal to vmalloc range. If yes, just skip adding the modules
range.
