Please update the function description for dissolve_free_huge_page() as
well. It currently says, "Returns -EBUSY if the dissolution fails because
a give page is not a free hugepage" which is no longer true as a result of
this change.

We may want to consider keeping at least the PageHuge(page) check before
calling dissolve_free_huge_page(). dissolve_free_huge_pages is called as
part of memory offline processing. We do not know if the memory to be offlined
contains huge pages or not. With your changes, we are taking hugetlb_lock
on each call to dissolve_free_huge_page just to discover that the page is
not a huge page.

You 'could' add a PageHuge(page) check to dissolve_free_huge_page before
taking the lock. However, you would need to check again after taking the
lock.
