Ok, here's the revised patch with this change, and the others
mentioned elsewhere.

RFC: Cleanup / small fixes to hugetlb fault handling

This patch makes some slight tweaks / cleanups to the fault handling
path for huge pages in -mm. My main motivation is to make it simpler
to fit COW in, but along the way it addresses a few minor problems
with the existing code:

- The check against i_size was duplicated: once in
find_lock_huge_page() and again in hugetlb_fault() after taking the
page_table_lock. We only really need the locked one, so remove the
other.

- find_lock_huge_page() isn't a great name, since it does extra things
not analagous to find_lock_page(). Rename it
find_or_alloc_huge_page() which is closer to the mark.
