Subject: [PATCH 3/6] struct page: add field for vm_struct

When a page is used for virtual memory, it is often necessary to obtian
a handler to the corresponding vm_struct, which refers to the virtually
continuous area generated when invoking vmalloc.

The struct page has a "mapping" field, which can be re-used, to store a
pointer to the parent area. This will avoid more expensive searches.

As example, the function find_vm_area is reimplemented, to take advantage
of the newly introduced field.
