Ok, I finally untangled this all. The real fix is to implement
vmalloc_user_node_flags() in mm/no_mmu.c. Took me a bit to understand
how all this stuff is supposed to compile. If you take a look at
vmalloc.h, you'll see that most variants of vmalloc() are not
conditionally defined like __vmalloc_node_flags_caller. I'll send a
different patch with proper fix in few minutes.
