    Subject[PATCH] mm/huge_memory: Clean up typo when updating mmu cache
    Hi Andrea

    There are three cases of update_mmu_cache() in the file, and the case in
    function collapse_huge_page() has a typo, namely the last parameter used,
    which is corrected based on the other two cases.

    Due to the define of update_mmu_cache by X86, the only arch that implements
    THP currently, the change here has no really crystal point, but one or two
    minutes of efforts could be saved for those archs that are likely to support
    THP in future.
