[This applies to tip/x86/vdso.  Patch 1/4 is a resend.]

This fixes an OOPS on systems without an HPET and incomplete
information in /proc/PID/maps.

The latter is done by adding a new vm_ops callback to replace
arch_vma_name, which is inflexible and awkward to use correctly.

With this series applied, calling mremap on the vdso results in
sensible output in /proc/PID/maps and the vvar area shows up
correctly.  I don't want to guarantee that mremap on the vdso will
do anything sensible right now, but that's unchanged from before.
In fact, I suspect that mremapping the vdso on 32-bit tasks is
rather broken right now due to sigreturn.

In current kernels, mremapping the vdso blows away the name:
badc0de0000-badc0de2000 r-xp 00000000 00:00 0

Now it doesn't:
badc0de0000-badc0de1000 r-xp 00000000 00:00 0                            [vdso]

As a followup, it might pay to replace install_special_mapping with
a new install_vdso_mapping function that hardcodes the "[vdso]"
name, to separately fix all the other arch_vma_name users (maybe
just ARM?) and then kill arch_vma_name completely.

NB: This touches core mm code.  I'd appreciate some review by the mm
folks.
