:) You only asked for one bit for PageDoubleMap, I've been greedier;
so it's not surprising if it has worked out better now.

Thanks; but I'm very glad that Linus expressed his dissatisfaction
with the first implementation, this one does feel much better.

Okay: I'm not convinced, but don't mind switching those around: done.

Yes, that would be more consistent, helper function doing the massage.
Done. __dump_page() then remains unchanged, but free_tail_pages_check()
uses subpages_mapcount_ptr(head_page) to check the whole field is zero.

v2 coming up - thanks.
