Subject: [PATCH] mm/vmalloc.c: Remove always-true conditional in vmap_init_free_space

When unsigned long variables are subtracted from one another,
the result is always non-negative.

The vmap_area_list is sorted by address.

So the following two conditions are always true.

1) if (busy->va_start - vmap_start > 0)
2) if (vmap_end - vmap_start > 0)

Just remove them.
