From: Liam Howlett <>

The WARN_ON() in vma_iter_store() detected an invalid VMA iterator
state.  Inspecting the code stack from the report shows that the VMA
iterator is never set to the correct start position.

Setting the initialization of the VMA iterator to use the address
'start' fixes this issue.

Andrew, this can be squashed into the mm-unstable ("madvise: use
split_vma() instead of __split_vma()")
