Subject[PATCH RFC 21/24] khugepaged: skip collapse if uffd-wp detected
Date
Don't collapse the huge PMD if there is any userfault write protected
small PTEs. The problem is that the write protection is in small page
granularity and there's no way to keep all these write protection
information if the small pages are going to be merged into a huge PMD.

The same thing needs to be considered for swap entries and migration
entries. So do the check as well disregarding khugepaged_max_ptes_swap.
