I am sorry to forget address Kirill's comment in 1st version.

The first one is the performance difference after this change for a PTE
mappged THP.

Here is the result:(in cycle)

Before Patched

963 195
988 40
895 78

Average 948 104

So the change reduced 90% time for function split_huge_pmd_address().

For the 2nd comment, the vma check. Let me take a further look to analysis.

Thanks for Kirill's suggestion.
