mremap: check if it's possible to split original vma
If original VMA can't be split at the desired address, do_munmap() will fail and leave both new-copied VMA and old VMA. De-facto it's MREMAP_DONTUNMAP behaviour, which is unexpected. Currently, it may fail such way for hugetlbfs and dax device mappings. Minimize such unpleasant situations to OOM by checking .may_split() before attempting to create a VMA copy.
