i can not submit in bbs, so i post my understanding about find_vma here, u can 
combine the post in bbs to see it.

-------------------------------------------------
/* Look up the first VMA which satisfies  addr < vm_end,  NULL if none. */
so it return the nearest address as u said. and the code list there is 
different with 2.4.20 code. u may try to read 2.4.20 code directly.

and
