The helper routine hstate_next_node_to_alloc accesses and modifies the
hstate variable next_nid_to_alloc.  The helper is used by the routines
alloc_pool_huge_page and adjust_pool_surplus.  adjust_pool_surplus is
called with hugetlb_lock held.  However, alloc_pool_huge_page can not
be called with the hugetlb lock held as it will call the page allocator.
Two instances of alloc_pool_huge_page could be run in parallel or
alloc_pool_huge_page could run in parallel with adjust_pool_surplus
which may result in the variable next_nid_to_alloc becoming invalid
for the caller and pages being allocated on the wrong node.

Both alloc_pool_huge_page and adjust_pool_surplus are only called from
the routine set_max_huge_pages after boot.  set_max_huge_pages is only
called as the reusult of a user writing to the proc/sysfs nr_hugepages,
or nr_hugepages_mempolicy file to adjust the number of hugetlb pages.

It makes little sense to allow multiple adjustment to the number of
hugetlb pages in parallel.  Add a mutex to the hstate and use it to only
allow one hugetlb page adjustment at a time.  This will synchronize
modifications to the next_nid_to_alloc variable.
