Subject[14/53] thp: set compound tail page _count to zero
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Youquan Song <youquan.song@intel.com>

commit 58a84aa92723d1ac3e1cc4e3b0ff49291663f7e1 upstream.

Commit 70b50f94f1644 ("mm: thp: tail page refcounting fix") keeps all
page_tail->_count zero at all times. But the current kernel does not
set page_tail->_count to zero if a 1GB page is utilized. So when an
IOMMU 1GB page is used by KVM, it wil result in a kernel oops because a
tail page's _count does not equal zero.

kernel BUG at include/linux/mm.h:386!
invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP
