Actually default_hstate is defined as:

#define default_hstate (hstates[default_hstate_idx])

default_hstate_idx is set during hugetlb_init based upon default_hstate_size
which defaults to HPAGE_SIZE. However, it can be overridden by the kernel
command line argument "default_hugepagesz=<size>".

By definition and history /proc/meminfo lists information on the default
huge page size. This code is looping through all hstates to get the total
memory consumed by hugetlb pages for the new "Hugetlb" field. When it gets
to the default huge page size, it prints the historic fields.

Hope that helps,
