    I think the reason Badari was looking at it was that some DB guys want
    to get some statistics out of there. They'll certainly care about
    HugeTLB pages.

    With the HugeTLB prefault mechanism having gone away, we can't assume
    that the pages are resident. So, I don't think just using the VMA's
    size will work.
