Subject[PATCH 3/3] hugetlbfs: remove unnecessary code after i_mmap_rwsem synchronization
Date
After expanding i_mmap_rwsem use for better shared pmd and page fault/
truncation synchronization, remove code that is no longer necessary.

Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org>
Fixes: ebed4bfc8da8 ("hugetlb: fix absurd HugePages_Rsvd")
