Subject[PATCH v7 3/4] mm, thp: introduce FOLL_SPLIT_PMD
Date
This patches introduces a new foll_flag: FOLL_SPLIT_PMD. As the name says
FOLL_SPLIT_PMD splits huge pmd for given mm_struct, the underlining huge
page stays as-is.

FOLL_SPLIT_PMD is useful for cases where we need to use regular pages,
but would switch back to huge page and huge pmd on. One of such example
is uprobe. The following patches use FOLL_SPLIT_PMD in uprobe.
