When allocating a huge page, we ignore the gfp_mask argument.

That doesn't matter right now since AFAICT we're not losing any flags: gfp_mask
from existing callers of __read_swap_cache_async seems to always be a subset of
GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE and alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask always returns a
superset of that.

But maybe we should warn here in case we end up violating a restriction from a
future caller. Something like this?:

> + gfp_t gfp = alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask(vma);
VM_WARN_ONCE((gfp | gfp_mask) != gfp,
"ignoring gfp_mask bits");
