Subject: [PATCH 1/1] vmalloc: Fix issues with flush flag

Meelis Roos reported issues with the new VM_FLUSH_RESET_PERMS flag on the
sparc architecture.

When freeing many BPF JITs at once the free operations can become stuck
waiting for locks as they each try to vm_unmap_aliases(). Calls to this
function happen frequently on some archs, but in vmalloc itself the lazy
purge operations happens more rarely, where only in extreme cases could
multiple purges be happening at once. Since this is cross platform code we
shouldn't do this here where it could happen concurrently in a burst, and
instead just flush the TLB. Also, add a little logic to skip calls to
page_address() when possible to further speed this up, since they may have
locking on some archs.

Lastly, it appears that the calculation of the address range to flush
was broken at some point, so fix that as well.

Fixes: 868b104d7379 ("mm/vmalloc: Add flag for freeing of special permsissions")
