Subject: userfaultfd: disable huge PMD sharing for MINOR registered VMAs

As the comment says: for the MINOR fault use case, although the page might
be present and populated in the other (non-UFFD-registered) half of the
mapping, it may be out of date, and we explicitly want userspace to get a
minor fault so it can check and potentially update the page's contents.

Huge PMD sharing would prevent these faults from occurring for suitably
aligned areas, so disable it upon UFFD registration.
