This series brings huge pages and transparent huge pages to ARM64.
The functionality is very similar to x86, and a lot of code that can
be used by both ARM64 and x86 is brought into mm to avoid the need
for code duplication.
One notable difference from x86 is that ARM64 supports normal pages
that are 64KB. When 64KB pages are enabled, huge page and
transparent huge pages are 512MB only, otherwise the sizes match
This series applies to 3.10-rc2.
I've tested this under the ARMv8 Fast model and the x86 code has
been tested in a KVM guest. libhugetlbfs was used for testing under
* pud_large usage replaced with pud_huge for general hugetlb
code imported into mm.
* comments tidied up for bit swap of PTE_FILE, PTE_PROT_NONE.
* PROT_NONE support added for HugeTLB and THP.
* pmd_modify implementation fixed.
* Superfluous huge dcache flushing code removed.
* Simplified (and corrected) MAX_ORDER raise for THP && 64KB
* The MAX_ORDER check in huge_mm.h has been corrected.
