I think the term "THP" is used ambiguously. Often, but not always, in
the code, folks will go out of their way to specify "hugepage-sized"
page vs "pmd-mapped hugepage" - but at least from my experience,
external documentation doesn't. Given that THP as a concept doesn't
make much sense without the possibility of pmd-mapping, I think
"THPeligible here means "pmd mappable". For example, AnonHugePages in
smaps means pmd-mapped anon hugepages.

That all said - the following patches will delete
transparent_hugepage_active() anyways.
