OK, this is aligning with KPF_HUGE. For those who only care about
head/tail pages, will the KPF_COMPOUND_HEAD/KPF_COMPOUND_TAIL flags be
set automatically for thp? Which may be more convenient to test/filter
than the page address.

As you already discussed, the below #ifdef should be removed.
In fact, kernel-page-flags.h is intended for direct inclusion by
user space tools, so must not have any conditional defines.
