AFAICT there's no reason to do anything different than what we do for
PTEs. Make it so (also affects SH).

-/*
- * pte_offset_map_lock() on 32-bit PAE kernels was reading the pmd_t with
- * a "*pmdp" dereference done by GCC. Problem is, in certain places
- * where pte_offset_map_lock() is called, concurrent page faults are
- * allowed, if the mmap_lock is hold for reading. An example is mincore
- * vs page faults vs MADV_DONTNEED. On the page fault side
- * pmd_populate() rightfully does a set_64bit(), but if we're reading the
- * pmd_t with a "*pmdp" on the mincore side, a SMP race can happen
- * because GCC will not read the 64-bit value of the pmd atomically.
- *
- * To fix this all places running pte_offset_map_lock() while holding the
- * mmap_lock in read mode, shall read the pmdp pointer using this
- * function to know if the pmd is null or not, and in turn to know if
- * they can run pte_offset_map_lock() or pmd_trans_huge() or other pmd
- * operations.
- *
- * Without THP if the mmap_lock is held for reading, the pmd can only
- * transition from null to not null while pmd_read_atomic() runs. So
- * we can always return atomic pmd values with this function.
- *
- * With THP if the mmap_lock is held for reading, the pmd can become
- * trans_huge or none or point to a pte (and in turn become "stable")
- * at any time under pmd_read_atomic(). We could read it truly
- * atomically here with an atomic64_read() for the THP enabled case (and
- * it would be a whole lot simpler), but to avoid using cmpxchg8b we
- * only return an atomic pmdval if the low part of the pmdval is later
- * found to be stable (i.e. pointing to a pte). We are also returning a
- * 'none' (zero) pmdval if the low part of the pmd is zero.
- *
- * In some cases the high and low part of the pmdval returned may not be
- * consistent if THP is enabled (the low part may point to previously
- * mapped hugepage, while the high part may point to a more recently
- * mapped hugepage), but pmd_none_or_trans_huge_or_clear_bad() only
- * needs the low part of the pmd to be read atomically to decide if the
- * pmd is unstable or not, with the only exception when the low part
- * of the pmd is zero, in which case we return a 'none' pmd.
