Subject[patch] mm, thp: fix defrag setting if newline is not used
If thp defrag setting "defer" is used and a newline is *not* used when
writing to the sysfs file, this is interpreted as the "defer+madvise"
option.

This is because we do prefix matching and if five characters are written
without a newline, the current code ends up comparing to the first five
bytes of the "defer+madvise" option and using that instead.

Find the length of what the user is writing and use that to guide our
decision on which string comparison to do.

Fixes: 21440d7eb904 ("mm, thp: add new defer+madvise defrag option")

This can be done in *many* different ways including extracting logic to
a helper function. If someone would like this to be implemented
differently, please suggest it.
