Regressions (compared to build v4.9.143)

* truncate_above_4GB-2M-32

qemu_i386:
libhugetlbfs:
* truncate_above_4GB-4M-32

x15 - arm:
libhugetlbfs:
* truncate_above_4GB-2M-32

Test description:
----------------------
https://github.com/libhugetlbfs/libhugetlbfs/blob/master/tests/truncate_above_4GB.c

/*
* Test rationale:
*
* At one stage, a misconversion of hugetlb_vmtruncate_list to a
* prio_tree meant that on 32-bit machines, truncates at or above 4GB
* could truncate lower pages, resulting in BUG_ON()s.
*
* WARNING: The offsets and addresses used within are specifically
* calculated to trigger the bug as it existed. Don't mess with them
* unless you *really* know what you're doing.
*
* The kernel bug in question was fixed with commit
* 856fc29505556cf263f3dcda2533cf3766c14ab6.
