OK, I've removed those reviewed-by's. (I felt bad about dropping them, after
people had devoted time to reviewing, but I do see that it's wrong to imply
that they've reviewed this much much larger thing.)

Done. It is only a modest code-level change, at least the way I've done it, which is
setting FOLL_GET for try_grab_compound_head(). In order to do that, I set
it at the top of the internal gup fast calling stacks, which is actually a good
design anyway: gup fast is logically doing FOLL_GET in all cases. So setting
the flag internally is accurate and consistent with the overall design.

OK, I've moved it up, adding a "subpage" variable in order to make that work.

Yes. I've removed it, good spot.
