Hello, Aneesh.

We don't consider avoid_reserve when chg != 0.
Look at following code.

+ if (chg || avoid_reserve)
+ if (hugepage_subpool_get_pages(spool, 1))

It means that if chg != 0, we skip to check avoid_reserve.

We still pass avoid_reserve to dequeue_huge_page_vma() and check avoid_reserve
there, so maintaining avoid_reserve and checking it separately is better
to understand a logic. And it doesn't matter at all since I eventually unify
these in patch 13.
