apply_to_pmd_range() has BUG_ON(pud_huge(*pud)) and apply_to_pte_range() has
BUG_ON(pmd_huge(*pmd)), so this page table walking code seems to not expect
to handle pmd/pud level mapping.

I think that most of page table walker for user address space should first
check is_vm_hugetlb_page() and call hugetlb specific walking code for vma
copy_page_range() is a good example. It calls copy_hugetlb_page_range()
for vma with VM_HUGETLB and the function should support hwpoison entry.
But I feel that I need testing for confirmation.

And I'm not sure that all other are prepared for non-present pud-mapping,
so I'll need somehow code inspection and testing for each.
