virt_addr_valid is supposed to return true if and only if virt_to_page
returns a valid page structure. The current macro does math on whatever
address is given and passes that to pfn_valid to verify. vmalloc and
module addresses can happen to generate a pfn that 'happens' to be
valid. Fix this by only performing the pfn_valid check on addresses that
have the potential to be valid.

v2: Properly parenthesize macro arguments. Re-factor to common macro.

Also in case it wasn't clear, there's no need to try and squeeze this
into 4.8. Hardened usercopy should have all the checks, this is just for
full correctness.
