Subject[PATCH -mm -v7 7/9] mm, THP: Add can_split_huge_page()
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

Separates checking whether we can split the huge page from
split_huge_page_to_list() into a function. This will help to check that
before splitting the THP (Transparent Huge Page) really.

This will be used for delaying splitting THP during swapping out. Where
for a THP, we will allocate a swap cluster, add the THP into the swap
cache, then split the THP. To avoid the unnecessary operations for the
un-splittable THP, we will check that firstly.

There is no functionality change in this patch.
