Subject: hugetlb/userfaultfd: forbid huge pmd sharing when uffd enabled

Huge pmd sharing could bring problem to userfaultfd.  The thing is that
userfaultfd is running its logic based on the special bits on page table
entries, however the huge pmd sharing could potentially share page table
entries for different address ranges.  That could cause issues on either:

  - When sharing huge pmd page tables for an uffd write protected range, the
    newly mapped huge pmd range will also be write protected unexpectedly, or,

  - When we try to write protect a range of huge pmd shared range, we'll first
    do huge_pmd_unshare() in hugetlb_change_protection(), however that also
    means the UFFDIO_WRITEPROTECT could be silently skipped for the shared
    region, which could lead to data loss.

Since at it, a few other things are done altogether:

  - Move want_pmd_share() from mm/hugetlb.c into linux/hugetlb.h, because
    that's definitely something that arch code would like to use too

  - ARM64 currently directly check against CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_HUGE_PMD_SHARE when
    trying to share huge pmd.  Switch to the want_pmd_share() helper.

Since at it, move vma_shareable() from huge_pmd_share() into want_pmd_share().
