From: "Thomas Hellstrom (VMware)" <thomas_os@shipmail.org>

The functions wp_huge_pmd() and wp_huge_pud() currently relies on the
huge_fault() callback to split huge page table entries if needed.
However for module users that requires export of the split_huge_xxx()
functionality which may be undesired. Instead split pre-existing huge
page-table entries on VM_FAULT_FALLBACK return.

We currently only do COW and write-notify on the PTE level, so if the
huge_fault() handler returns VM_FAULT_FALLBACK on wp faults,
split the huge pages and page-table entries. Also do this for huge PUDs
if there is no huge_fault() handler and the vma is not anonymous, similar
to how it's done for PMDs.

Note that fs/dax.c still does the splitting in the huge_fault() handler,
but as huge_fault() A follow-up patch can remove the dax.c split_huge_pmd()
if needed.
