From mm/nommu.c:
void *__vmalloc(unsigned long size, gfp_t gfp_mask)
{
	/*
	 *  You can't specify __GFP_HIGHMEM with kmalloc() since kmalloc()
	 * returns only a logical address.
	 */
	return kmalloc(size, (gfp_mask | __GFP_COMP) & ~__GFP_HIGHMEM);
}

__vmalloc just elimitate __GFP_HIGHMEM, so it makes no sense to add
__GFP_HIGHMEM for nommu's vmalloc/vzalloc.

changelog:
 *v2: Also fix a space style warning reported from checkpatch, which is
      introduced via commit 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
