mm, vmalloc: properly track vmalloc users

__vmalloc_node_flags used to be static inline but this has changed by
"mm: introduce kv[mz]alloc helpers" because kvmalloc_node needs to use
it as well and the code is outside of the vmalloc proper.  I haven't
realized that changing this will lead to a subtle bug though.  The
function is responsible to track the caller as well.  This caller is
then printed by /proc/vmallocinfo.  If __vmalloc_node_flags is not
inline then we would get only direct users of __vmalloc_node_flags as
callers (e.g.  v[mz]alloc) which reduces usefulness of this debugging
feature considerably.  It simply doesn't help to see that the given
range belongs to vmalloc as a caller:

  0xffffc90002c79000-0xffffc90002c7d000   16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N0=3
  0xffffc90002c81000-0xffffc90002c85000   16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3
  0xffffc90002c8d000-0xffffc90002c91000   16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3
  0xffffc90002c95000-0xffffc90002c99000   16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3

We really want to catch the _caller_ of the vmalloc function.  Fix this
issue by making __vmalloc_node_flags static inline again.
