I think we have enough infrastructure currently in hugetlbfs to
implement what Adam wants for something like a /dev/hugetlb char
device (except we can't afford to have a zero hugetlb page since it
will be too costly on some arch).

I really like the idea of having something similar to /dev/zero for
hugetlb page. So I coded it up on top of existing hugetlbfs. The
core change is really small and half of the patch is really just
moving things around. I think this at least can partially fulfill the
goal.
