    i386: fix iounmap's use of vm_struct's size field
    get_vm_area always returns an area with an adjacent guard page.  That guard
    page is included in vm_struct.size.  iounmap uses vm_struct.size to
    determine how much address space needs to have change_page_attr applied to
    it, which will BUG if applied to the guard page.
    This patch adds a helper function - get_vm_area_size() in linux/vmalloc.h -
    to return the actual size of a vm area, and uses it to make iounmap do the
    right thing.  There are probably other places which should be using
    Thanks to Dave Young <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> for debugging the
    [ Andi, it wasn't clear to me whether x86_64 needs the same fix. ]
