[PATCH] Check if start address is in vma region in NOMMU function get_user_pages()
In NOMMU arch, if run "cat /proc/self/mem", data from physical address 0 are read. This behavior is different from MMU arch. In IA32, message "cat: /proc/self/mem: Input/output error" is reported. This issue is rootcaused by not validate the start address in NOMMU function get_user_pages(). Following patch solves this issue.
