Well OK, but the changelog is wrong - we don't call find_vma_prev()
here any more.

How does this look?


From: Xiao Guangrong <xiaoguangrong@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Subject: hugetlb: remove prev_vma from hugetlb_get_unmapped_area_topdown()

After looking up the vma which covers or follows the cached search
address, the following condition is always true:

	!prev_vma || (addr >= prev_vma->vm_end)

so we can stop checking the previous VMA altogether.
