mm: vm_unmapped_area() lookup function
Implement vm_unmapped_area() using the rb_subtree_gap and highest_vm_end information to look up for suitable virtual address space gaps. struct vm_unmapped_area_info is used to define the desired allocation request: - lowest or highest possible address matching the remaining constraints - desired gap length - low/high address limits that the gap must fit into - alignment mask and offset Also update the generic arch_get_unmapped_area[_topdown] functions to make use of vm_unmapped_area() instead of implementing a brute force search.
