The commit 7635d9cbe832 ("mm, thp, proc: report THP eligibility for each
vma") introduced THPeligible bit for processes' smaps. But, when checking
the eligibility for shmem vma, __transparent_hugepage_enabled() is
called to override the result from shmem_huge_enabled().  It may result
in the anonymous vma's THP flag override shmem's.  For example, running a
simple test which create THP for shmem, but with anonymous THP disabled,
when reading the process's smaps, it may show:

7fc92ec00000-7fc92f000000 rw-s 00000000 00:14 27764 /dev/shm/test
Size:               4096 kB
ShmemPmdMapped:     4096 kB
THPeligible:    0

And, /proc/meminfo does show THP allocated and PMD mapped too:

ShmemHugePages:     4096 kB
ShmemPmdMapped:     4096 kB

This doesn't make too much sense.  The shmem objects should be treated
separately from anonymous THP.  Calling shmem_huge_enabled() with checking
MMF_DISABLE_THP sounds good enough.  And, we could skip stack and
dax vma check since we already checked if the vma is shmem already.

Also check if vma is suitable for THP by calling

And minor fix to smaps output format and documentation.
