investigating the huge page theory a little further I'm a bit confused.
The kernel on that machine has THP enabled, and the cpu supports it (an old amd64), but..

$ cat /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/*

I was expecting at least one of those to be non-zero.

/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/khugepaged/full_scans and pages_collapsed
are both non-zero, so it's been busy doing _something_.

Is this expected behaviour ?
