No, you're right, this is a bug.

I originally had it in my mind that hugetlbfs wouldn't need to do this
any more because it can just use the folio interfaces and never try to
find the subpage.

But I don't understand all the cases well enough to be sure that
they're all gone, and they certainly don't all go as part of this
patch series. So I think I need to reintroduce the check-for-hugetlb
to folio_file_page() and we can look at removing it later once we're
sure that nobody is using the interfaces that return pages from the page
cache any more. Or we convert hugetlbfs to use the page cache the same
way as every other filesystem ;-)

Thanks for spotting that.
