On some architectures (e.g. x86_64 and arm64), vmemmap pages are usually
mapped with huge pmd. We will disable the huge pmd mapping of vmemmap
pages when the feature of "Free vmemmap pages of HugeTLB page" is enabled.
This can affect the non-HugeTLB pages. What we want is only mapping the
vmemmap pages associated with HugeTLB pages with base page. We can split
the huge pmd mapping of vmemmap pages when freeing vmemmap pages of
HugeTLB page. But we need to preallocate page tables. In this patch, we
introduce page tables allocationg/freeing helpers.

These helper routines are pretty straight forward.
