       Sincerely, I don't understand why this patch is bad. Is no worse
   than the previous situation :??
How about something like:

        if (len == 0)
                return addr;

        len = PAGE_ALIGN(len);
        if (len > TASK_SIZE || len == 0)
                return -EINVAL;

That should cover all cases and not make the TASK_SIZE assumption.
