Indeed. I have prepared a new incarnation of pmalloc, based on genalloc.
There are a couple of things that I would like to adjust in genalloc,
but I'll discuss this in the new submission.

Yes, if this function is called, at least the beginning of the range
*is* a vmalloc address and therefore the rest should be a vmalloc
address as well.
