'new' is the PTE subpage of 'page'. clear_page_mlock() wants to see head
page.

I guess we can rewrite it more clearly:

+ if (PageTransHuge(page) && PageMlocked(page))
+ clear_page_mlock(page);
+

We has to clear mlock, not only don't mark it as such.
remove_migration_pmd() for other VMA may mark it as mlock and we want to
revert it on the first PTE mapping of the page.
