Subject[RFC 3/4] mm, thp: try fault allocations only if we expect them to succeed
Date
Since we track THP availability for khugepaged THP collapses, we can use it
also for page fault THP allocations. If khugepaged with its sync compaction
is not able to allocate a hugepage, then it's unlikely that the less involved
attempt on page fault would succeed, and the cost could be higher than THP
benefits. Also clear the THP availability flag if we do attempt and fail to
allocate during page fault, and set the flag if we are freeing a large enough
page from any context. The latter doesn't include merges, as that's a fast
path and unlikely to make much difference.

Also restructure alloc_pages_vma() a bit.
