And "how"!

Sprinking a bunch of magical if (thp) {} else {} throughtout the code
looks like a stunningly bad idea to me. It'd take real work to
restructure the code such that the current paths are a degenerate case
of the larger thp page case, but that's the work that needs doing in my
estimation.
