[PATCHv3 12/27] x86/vdso: Restrict splitting VVAR VMA

Although, time namespace can work with VVAR VMA split, it seems worth
to forbid splitting VVAR resulting in stricter ABI and reducing amount
of corner-cases to consider while working further on VDSO.

I don't think there is any use-case for partial mremap() of vvar,
but if there is any - this patch can be easily reverted.
