After some thinking together with Al I realized that my approach is not
that nice.
UML cannot use arch_setup_additional_pages() since it is only being called
for ELF binaries. And, most important, it needs also to install them also in
arch_dup_mmap() because we cannot copy the pages upon fork().
Since this is only a minor issue I'd like to find a solution with the least
churn.

An alternative solution would be providing another mm hook to find such an
"early vma". Please see the attached diff. What do you think?

Thanks,
