    mm: unify module_alloc code for vmalloc · d0a21265
    David Rientjes authored
    Four architectures (arm, mips, sparc, x86) use __vmalloc_area() for
    module_init().  Much of the code is duplicated and can be generalized in a
    globally accessible function, __vmalloc_node_range().
    __vmalloc_node() now calls into __vmalloc_node_range() with a range of
    [VMALLOC_START, VMALLOC_END) for functionally equivalent behavior.
    Each architecture may then use __vmalloc_node_range() directly to remove
    the duplication of code.
