I expect this will be used in arch independent code and there will need to
be at least a stub for all architectures?

Somewhat agree. With this we have:
- huge_pte_offset to walk/lookup a pte
- huge_pte_alloc to allocate ptes
- hugetlb_walk_to which does some/all of both

Do not see anything obviously wrong with the routine, but future
direction would be to combine/clean up these routines with similar
purpose.
