That's a great point. Even the WARN_ON_ONCE could trigger if the pte got
modified in parallel, so definitely broken.

Yes I'd better do that with the pgtable lock, mostly hugetlb_no_page() should
be the only function to handle this special case. So maybe I don't need to
emulate the READ fault at all, but just check pte_swp_uffd_wp_special() with
the lock, then do wrprotect properly should suffice. Maybe that's even true
for shmem, I'll think more about it.

Thanks!
