mm/nommu.c: fix remap_pfn_range()

remap_pfn_range() means map physical address pfn<<PAGE_SHIFT to user addr.

For nommu arch it's implemented by vma->vm_start = pfn << PAGE_SHIFT which
is wrong acroding the original meaning of this function.  And some driver
developer using remap_pfn_range() with correct parameter will get
unexpected result because vm_start is changed.  It should be implementd
like addr = pfn << PAGE_SHIFT but which is meanless on nommu arch, this
patch just make it simply return.

Parameter name and setting of vma->vm_flags also be fixed.
