Thanks for pointing out hugetlb_free_pgd_range. I think I'll need to
change how freeing HugeTLB HGM PTEs is written, because as written, we
don't do any architecture-specific things. I think I have a good idea
for what I need to do, probably something like this: make
`hugetlb_free_range` overridable, and then provide an implementation
for it for all the architectures that
HAVE_ARCH_HUGETLB_FREE_PGD_RANGE. Making the regular `free_p?d_range`
functions public *does* help with implementing the regular/general
`hugetlb_free_range` function though, so I think this commit is still
useful.
