mm: avoid wrapping vm_pgoff in mremap()

The normal mmap paths all avoid creating a mapping where the pgoff
inside the mapping could wrap around due to overflow.  However, an
expanding mremap() can take such a non-wrapping mapping and make it
bigger and cause a wrapping condition.

Noticed by Robert Swiecki when running a system call fuzzer, where it
caused a BUG_ON() due to terminally confusing the vma_prio_tree code.  A
vma dumping patch by Hugh then pinpointed the crazy wrapped case.
