Since we link a vma to the leaf of a rb_tree, *next* must be a parent of
vma if *next* is not NULL. This means if we update *next* gap first, it
will be re-update again if vma's gap is bigger.

For example, we have a vma tree like this:

                a
                [0x9000, 0x10000]
            /            \
        b                 c
        [0x8000, 0x9000]  [0x10000, 0x11000]

The gap for each node is:

  a's gap = 0x8000
  b's gap = 0x8000
  c's gap = 0x0

Now we want to insert d [0x6000, 0x7000], then the tree look like this:

                a
                [0x9000, 0x10000]
            /            \
        b                 c
        [0x8000, 0x9000]  [0x10000, 0x11000]
     /
    d
    [0x6000, 0x7000]

b is the *next* of d. If we update b's gap first, it would be 0x1000 and
propagate to a. And then when update d's gap, which is 0x6000 and
propagate through b to a again.

If we update d's gap first, the un-consistent gap 0x1000 will not be
propagated.
