    It does pagebuf I/O with kmalloced memory? Wow. Pretty much anything
    which goes from kmalloc virtual addresses back to pageframes is a big fat
    warning sign.

    Do you see any reason why we shouldn't flip things around and make the
    hugetlb code explicitly request the compound page metadata when allocating
    the pages?
