Hi, Mel.

Thank you for the review.

OK.

Yes, hugetlb.h includes pagemap.h through mempolicy.h.
I didn't make pagemap.h depend on hugetlb.h because it makes cyclic dependency
among pagemap.h, mempolicy.h and hugetlb.h.

I have another choice to move the definition of is_vm_hugetlb_page() into
mm/hugetlb.c and introduce declaration of this function to pagemap.h,
but this needed a bit ugly #ifdefs and I didn't like it.
If putting hugetlb code in mm.h is worse, I'll take the second choice
in the next post.

Sounds reasonable, I'll do it.

OK, thanks you :)
