Currently, for compound PUD mappings, the implementation consumes 40MB
per TB but it can be optimized to 16MB per TB with the approach
detailed below.

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

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 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. Rather than
requiring 8 PMD page allocations 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.

 It only use 3 page structs for storing all information as opposed
 to 4 on HugeTLB pages. This does not affect memory savings between both.
 
+Additionally, it further extends the tail page deduplication with 1GB
+device-dax compound pages.
+
+E.g.: A 1G device-dax page on x86_64 consists in 4096 page frames, split
+across 8 PMD page frames, with the first PMD having 2 PTE page frames.
+In total this represents a total of 40960 bytes per 1GB page.

+Page frames of PMD 1 through 7 are allocated and mapped to the same PTE page frame
+that contains stores tail pages. As we can see in the diagram, PMDs 1 through 7
+all look like the same. Therefore we can map PMD 2 through 7 to PMD 1 page frame.
+This allows to free 6 vmemmap pages per 1GB page, decreasing the overhead per
+1GB page from 40960 bytes to 16384 bytes.
