follow_hugetlb_page() once it locks the pmd/pud, it checks all the
subpages in a huge page and grabs a reference for each one,
depending on how many pages we can store or the size of va range.
Similar to gup-fast, have follow_hugetlb_page() grab the head
page refcount only after counting all its subpages that are part
of the just faulted huge page.

Consequently we reduce the number of atomics necessary to pin
said huge page, which improves non-fast gup() considerably:

 - 16G with 1G huge page size
 gup_test -f /mnt/huge/file -m 16384 -r 10 -L -S -n 512 -w

 PIN_LONGTERM_BENCHMARK: ~87.6k us -> ~11k us

Thanks.  Nice straight forward improvement.
