mm: fix faulty initialization in vmalloc_init()
commit dbda591 upstream. The transfer of ->flags causes some of the static mapping virtual addresses to be prematurely freed (before the mapping is removed) because VM_LAZY_FREE gets "set" if tmp->flags has VM_IOREMAP set. This might cause subsequent vmalloc/ioremap calls to fail because it might allocate one of the freed virtual address ranges that aren't unmapped. va->flags has different types of flags from tmp->flags. If a region with VM_IOREMAP set is registered with vm_area_add_early(), it will be removed by __purge_vmap_area_lazy(). Fix vmalloc_init() to correctly initialize vmap_area for the given vm_struct. Also initialise va->vm. If it is not set, find_vm_area() for the early vm regions will always fail.
