Series mm, sparse-vmemmap: Introduce compound pagemaps | expand

Right now basepages are used to populate the PUD tail pages, and it
picks the address of the previous page of the subsection that preceeds
the memmap we are initializing.  This is done when a given memmap
address isn't aligned to the pgmap @align (which is safe to do because
@ranges are guaranteed to be aligned to @align).

For pagemaps with an align which spans various sections, this means
that PMD pages are unnecessarily allocated for reusing the same tail
pages.  Effectively, on x86 a PUD can span 8 sections (depending on
config), and a page is being  allocated a page for the PMD to reuse
the tail vmemmap across the rest of the PTEs. In short effecitvely the
PMD cover the tail vmemmap areas all contain the same PFN. So instead
of doing this way, populate a new PMD on the second section of the
compound page (tail vmemmap PMD), and then the following sections
utilize the preceding PMD we previously populated which only contain
tail pages).

After this scheme for an 1GB pagemap aligned area, the first PMD
(section) would contain head page and 32767 tail pages, where the
second PMD contains the full 32768 tail pages.  The latter page gets
its PMD reused across future section mapping of the same pagemap.

Besides fewer pagetable entries allocated, keeping parity with
hugepages in the directmap (as done by vmemmap_populate_hugepages()),
this further increases savings per compound page. For each PUD-aligned
pagemap we go from 40960 bytes down to 16384 bytes. Rather than
requiring 8 PMD page allocations we only need 2 (plus two base pages
allocated for head and tail areas for the first PMD). 2M pages still
require using base pages, though.
