Now we use rb_parent to get next, while this is not necessary.

When prev is NULL, this means vma should be the first element in the
list. Then next should be current first one (mm->mmap), no matter
whether we have parent or not.

After removing it, the code shows the beauty of symmetry.

Uhh ... did you test this?

The full context is:

        if (prev) {
                next = prev->vm_next;
                prev->vm_next = vma;
        } else {
                mm->mmap = vma;
                if (rb_parent)
                        next = rb_entry(rb_parent,
                                        struct vm_area_struct, vm_rb);
                else
                        next = NULL;
        }

Let's imagine we have a small tree with three ranges in it.

A: 5-7
B: 8-10
C: 11-13

I would imagine an rbtree for this case has B at the top with A
to its left and B to its right.

Now we're going to add range D at 3-4.  'next' should clearly be range A.
It will have NULL prev.  Your code is going to make 'B' next, not A.
Right?

I reboot successfully with this patch.

mm->mmap is not the rb_root.

mm->mmap is the first element in the ordered list, if my understanding is
correct.

I have enabled DEBUG_VM_RB, system looks good with this.
