[RFC PATCH] linux-user: test, don't assert addr != test in pgb_reserved_

From: Alex Bennée
Subject: [RFC PATCH] linux-user: test, don't assert addr != test in pgb_reserved_va
Date: Fri, 11 Sep 2020 15:56:30 +0100

On older kernels which don't implement MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE the kernel
may still fail to give us the address we asked for despite having
already probed the map for a valid hole. Asserting isn't particularly
useful to the user so let us move the check up and expand the
error_report a little to give them a fighting chance of working around
the problem.
