Previouly drivers have their own way of mapping range of
kernel pages/memory into user vma and this was done by
invoking vm_insert_page() within a loop.

As this pattern is common across different drivers, it can
be generalized by creating new functions and use it across
the drivers.

vm_insert_range() is the API which could be used to mapped
kernel memory/pages in drivers which has considered vm_pgoff

vm_insert_range_buggy() is the API which could be used to map
range of kernel memory/pages in drivers which has not considered
vm_pgoff. vm_pgoff is passed default as 0 for those drivers.

We _could_ then at a later "fix" these drivers which are using
vm_insert_range_buggy() to behave according to the normal vm_pgoff
offsetting simply by removing the _buggy suffix on the function
name and if that causes regressions, it gives us an easy way to revert.
