KVM doesn’t handle 1GB correctly for all types of non-hugetlbfs pages.
One example we have noticed internally but haven’t submitted an upstream patch yet is
for pages without “struct page”. As in this case, hva_to_pfn() will notice vma->vm_flags have VM_PFNMAP set
and call hva_to_pfn_remapped() -> follow_pfn().
However, follow_pfn() currently just calls follow_pte() which use __follow_pte_pmd() that doesn’t handle a huge PUD entry.
