Thanks for your comment.

I took a look into the code again and found I may miss something.

I found we support PUD THP pages, whilc hpage_nr_pages() just return
HPAGE_PMD_NR on PageTransHuge. Why this is not possible to return PUD number?

Search in the kernel tree, one implementation of PUD_SIZE fault is
dev_dax_huge_fault. If page fault happens here, would this if break the loop
too early?
