vmalloc size

Hi All,
I am trying to understand how vmalloc memory is reserved in kernel. In 3.4+
latest kernel, the default vmalloc size is 240MB. Is this a carveout from
the 1GiB memory that kernel has?

In other words can I do a __pa(VMALLOC_START) or __pa(VMALLOC_END)
or __pa(highmemory) irrespective of the vmalloc size that I request, say
 doing vmalloc=1G?

Thank you and Regards
