I did look over the series earlier. I have no issue with the hugetlb and
vmemmap modifications as they are enhancements to the existing
optimizations. My primary concern is the (small) increased overhead
for the helpers as outlined in your cover letter. Since these helpers
are not limited to hugetlb and used throughout the kernel, I would
really like to get comments from others with a better understanding of
the potential impact.
