Subject[PATCH -V2 -mm 4/4] mm, hugetlbfs: Pass fault address to cow handler
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

This is to take better advantage of the general huge page copying
optimization. Where, the target subpage will be copied last to avoid
the cache lines of target subpage to be evicted when copying other
subpages. This works better if the address of the target subpage is
available when copying huge page. So hugetlbfs page fault handlers
are changed to pass that information to hugetlb_cow(). This will
benefit workloads which don't access the begin of the hugetlbfs huge
page after the page fault under heavy cache contention.
