Subject[PATCH] hugetlb: fix pages per hugetlb calculation
The routine hpage_nr_pages() was incorrectly used to calculate the
number of base pages in a hugetlb page. hpage_nr_pages is designed
to be called for THP pages and will return HPAGE_PMD_NR for hugetlb
pages of any size.

Due to the context in which hpage_nr_pages was called, it is unlikely
to produce a user visible error. The routine with the incorrect call
is only exercised in the case of hugetlb memory error or migration.
In addition, this would need to be on an architecture which supports
huge page sizes less than PMD_SIZE. And, the vma containing the huge
page would also need to smaller than PMD_SIZE.

Fixes: c0d0381ade79 ("hugetlbfs: use i_mmap_rwsem for more pmd sharing synchronization")
