Subject[PATCH] mm/hugetlb: allow gigantic page allocation to migrate away smaller huge page
Date
The current pfn_range_valid_gigantic() rejects the pud huge page allocation
if there is a pmd huge page inside the candidate range.

But pud huge resource is more rare, which should align on 1GB on x86. It is
worth to allow migrating away pmd huge page to make room for a pud huge
page.

The same logic is applied to pgd and pud huge pages.
