Subject: [PATCH v3 13/66] xen/privcmd: Optimized privcmd_ioctl_mmap() by using
 vma_lookup()

From: "Liam R. Howlett" <Liam.Howlett@...cle.com>

vma_lookup() walks the VMA tree for a specific value, find_vma() will
search the tree after walking to a specific value.  It is more efficient
to only walk to the requested value as this case requires the address to
equal the vm_start.
