The default max_cache_size_bytes for dm-bufio is meant to be the lesser
of 25% of the size of the vmalloc area and 2% of the size of lowmem.
However, on 32-bit systems the intermediate result in the expression

    (VMALLOC_END - VMALLOC_START) * DM_BUFIO_VMALLOC_PERCENT / 100

overflows, causing the wrong result to be computed.  For example, on a
32-bit system where the vmalloc area is 520093696 bytes, the result is
1174405 rather than the expected 130023424, which makes the maximum
cache size much too small (far less than 2% of lowmem).  This causes
severe performance problems for dm-verity users on affected systems.

Fix this by using mult_frac() to correctly multiply by a percentage.  Do
this for all places in dm-bufio that multiply by a percentage.  Also
replace (VMALLOC_END - VMALLOC_START) with VMALLOC_TOTAL, which contrary
to the comment is now defined in include/linux/vmalloc.h.
