Current sequence to remove a vma is:

  vma_rb_erase_ignore()
  __vma_unlink_list()
  vma_gap_update()

This may do some extra subtree_gap propagation due the vma is unlink
from list after rb_erase.

For example, we have a tree:

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

The gap for each node is:

  a's gap = 0x6000
  b's gap = 0x6000
  c's gap = 0x0
  d's gap = 0x6000

Now we want to remove node d. Since we don't unlink d from link when
doing rb_erase, b's gap would still be computed to 0x1000. This leads to
the vma_gap_update() after list unlink would recompute b and a's gap.

For this case, by unlink the list before rb_erase, we would have one
time less of vma_compute_subtree_gap.
