The first patch is really a cleanup and should not result in code
changes. It just make sure that we use pmdp_* functions only on hugepage
ptes and not on regular pmd_t pointers to pgtable. It avoid the not so
nice if (pmd_trans_huge()) check in the code and allows us to do the
VM_BUG_ON(!pmd_trans_huge(*pmdp)) there. That is really important on
archs like ppc64 where regular pmd format is different from hugepage pte
format.

> Why? pmdp_clear_flush() does kick_all_cpus_sync() already.

Here we are clearing the regular pmd_t and for ppc64 that means we need
to invalidate all the normal page pte mappings we already have inserted
in the hardware hash page table. But before doing that we need to make
sure there are no parallel hash page table insert going on. So we need
to do a kick_all_cpus_sync() before flushing the older hash table
entries. By moving this to a seperate function we capture these details
nicely.
