Subject[RFC PATCH 1/3] mm:hugetlb: Define system call hugetlb size encodings in single file
Date
If hugetlb pages are requested in mmap or shmget system calls,  a huge
page size other than default can be requested. This is accomplished by
encoding the log2 of the huge page size in the upper bits of the flag
argument. asm-generic and arch specific headers all define the same
values for these encodings.

Put common definitions in a single header file. arch specific code can
still override if desired.

+ * Several system calls take a flag to request "hugetlb" huge pages.
+ * Without further specification, these system calls will use the
+ * system's default huge page size. If a system supports multiple
+ * huge page sizes, the desired huge page size can be specified in
+ * bits [26:31] of the flag arguments. The value in these 6 bits
+ * will encode the log2 of the huge page size.
+ *
+ * The following definitions are associated with this huge page size
+ * encoding in flag arguments. System call specific header files
+ * that use this encoding should include this file. They can then
+ * provide definitions based on these with their own specific prefix.
+ * for example #define MAP_HUGE_SHIFT HUGETLB_FLAG_ENCODE_SHIFT.
