Subject[RFC PATCH] mm: align anon mmap for THP
Date
At LPC last year, Boaz Harrosh asked why he had to 'jump through hoops'
to get an address returned by mmap() suitably aligned for THP. It seems
that if mmap is asking for a mapping length greater than huge page
size, it should align the returned address to huge page size.

THP alignment has already been added for DAX, shm and tmpfs. However,
simple anon mappings does not take THP alignment into account.

I could not determine if this was ever considered or discussed in the past.

There is a maze of arch specific and independent get_unmapped_area
routines. The patch below just modifies the common vm_unmapped_area
routine. It may be too simplistic, but I wanted to throw out some
code while asking if something like this has ever been considered.
