Subject[PATCH v3 5/5] x86/mm: add WARN_ON_ONCE() for wrong large page mapping
Date
If there is a large page which contains an area which requires a
different mapping that the one which the large page provides,
then something went wrong _before_ this code is called.

Here we can catch a case where the existing mapping is wrong
already.
