I merged this but then realised it breaks the display of the vdso in /proc/self/maps.

ie. the vdso vma gets no name:

And it's also going to break the logic in arch_unmap() to detect if
we're unmapping (part of) the VDSO. And it will break arch_remap() too.

And the logic to recognise the signal trampoline in
arch/powerpc/perf/callchain_*.c as well.

So I'm going to rebase and drop this for now.

Basically we have a bunch of places that assume that vdso_base is == the
start of the VDSO vma, and also that the code starts there. So that will
need some work to tease out all those assumptions and make them work
with this change.

cheers
