Subject: Latest version of zero-copy fix

So now the patch only tests is_vmalloc_addr(), did you test this
version with the situation that triggers the given backtrace?

[<ffffffff814878ce>] p9_virtio_zc_request+0x45e/0x510
[<ffffffff814814ed>] p9_client_zc_rpc.constprop.16+0xfd/0x4f0

[<ffffffff810c83ab>] copy_module_from_fd.isra.34+0xfb/0x180

This is reading from v9fs into a module address.

It's going generate the same backtrace with your fix.

I don't think the situation was sufficiently explained to Linus.  In
fact, I didn't see the above backtrace mentioned at all.
