Sigh this patch is buggy.

        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Arguably the line above is safe, but unfortunately it has the
possibility of suffering from overflow.

Overflow handling you are removing here.

I suspect the proper way to handle this is to move the test for
overflow earlier so the code looks something like:

	end_vaddr = mm->task_size;

	src = *ppos;
	svpfn = src / PM_ENTRY_BYTES;

	/* watch out for wraparound */
        start_vaddr = end_vaddr;
	if (svpfn < (ULONG_MAX >> PAGE_SHIFT))
        	start_vaddr = untagged_addr(svpfn << PAGE_SHIFT);

	/* Ensure the address is inside the task */
	if (start_vaddr > mm->task_size)
        	start_vaddr = end_vaddr;
