Here is the test code that I used:
(warning: x86 centric)

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>

#define SIZE (4*1024*1024UL)

int main(void)
int fd;
long i;
char *addr;

fd = open("/dev/hugetlb", O_RDWR);
if (fd == -1) {
perror("open failure");

addr = mmap(0, SIZE, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE, fd, 0);
if (addr == MAP_FAILED) {
perror("mmap failure");

for (i = 0; i < SIZE; i+=4096)
addr[i] = 1;
