Just to be sure, added a comment block at the top of
huge_pages_needed().

Initial Post (Thu, 18 Aug 2005)

Basic overcommit checking for hugetlb_file_map() based on an implementation
used with demand faulting in SLES9.

Since we're not prefaulting the pages at mmap time, some extra accounting is
needed. This patch implements a basic sanity check to ensure that the number
of huge pages required to satisfy the mmap are currently available. Of course
this method doesn't guarantee that the pages will be available at fault time,
but I think it is a good start on doing proper accounting and solves 90% of the
overcommit problems I see in practice.

Huge page shared memory segments are simpler and still maintain their commit on
shmget semantics.
