copy_user_huge_page calls cond_resched() and has might_sleep(). Imagine
the time it takes to copy 1G. Usually called without holding locks, but
this new code is calling it with ptl locks held. The copy should be done
outside the ptl, but you will need the ptl to update the pte/rmap. So,
doing all this within one neat helper like this may not be possible.

Code to replace the above ClearPagePrivate and set_page_huge_active is
in Andrew's tree. With changes in Andrew's tree, this would be:

ClearHPageRestoreReserve(new_page);
SetHPageMigratable(new_page);

Ideally, the SetHPageMigratable would be done after the set_pte and add_rmap
so the page does not get migrated before these operations. However, this
can not happen since we are holding the ptl. So, no problem here. If code
is restructured to call copy_user_huge_page outside ptl, keep this in mind.

Also, technically ClearHPageRestoreReserve is not needed as it would not be
set by alloc_huge_page because we did not consume a reserve. However, better
to leave in place in case someone wants to use helper for something else.

alloc_huge_page will return error codes, so you need to check IS_ERR(prealloc)
not just NULL.
