lru_lock and page cache xa_lock have no reason with current sequence,
put them together isn't necessary. let's narrow the lru locking, but
left the local_irq_disable to block interrupt re-entry and statistic update.

Hugh Dickins point: split_huge_page_to_list() was already silly,to be
using the _irqsave variant: it's just been taking sleeping locks, so
would already be broken if entered with interrupts enabled.
so we can save passing flags argument down to __split_huge_page().

You're playing games with separating interrupt disabling from spinlocks.
Have you got any feedback from -rt people on this?

Is there other suggestions to remove local_irq_disable?

Just check again on kernel/mm directory on linux-next. there are still
much local_irq_disable there.

Guess we need a final solution instead of block new one.

Thanks
