Subject[RFC PATCH] hugetlbfs: fix the hugetlbfs can not be mounted
From: zhong jiang <>

Since 'commit 3e89e1c5ea84 ("hugetlb: make mm and fs code explicitly non-modular")'
bring in the mainline. mount hugetlbfs will result in the following issue.

mount: unknown filesystme type 'hugetlbfs'

because previous patch remove the module_alias_fs, when we mount the fs type,
the caller get_fs_type can not find the filesystem.

The patch just recover the module_alias_fs to identify the hugetlbfs.
