Not so, as long as the areas span PMDs THP can back them using huge
pages, regardless of what objects live in that virtual space (or indeed
if its given out as objects at all or lives on the free-lists).

THP doesn't care about what lives in the virtual space, all it cares
about is ranges spanning PMDs that are populated densely enough.
