This change isn’t only relevant for TDP. It also affects when KVM use shadow-paging.
See how FNAME(page_fault)() calls transparent_hugepage_adjust().

I would rephrase “The existing check is trying to determine if the pfn
is mapped as part of a transparent huge-page”.

This is not related to hugetlbfs but rather THP.

I don’t think the right place to change for this functionality is transparent_hugepage_adjust()
which is meant to handle PFNs that are mapped as part of a transparent huge-page.

For example, this would prevent mapping DAX-backed file page as 1GB.
As transparent_hugepage_adjust() only handles the case (level == PT_PAGE_TABLE_LEVEL).

As you are parsing the page-tables to discover the page-size the PFN is mapped in,
I think you should instead modify kvm_host_page_size() to parse page-tables instead
of rely on vma_kernel_pagesize() (Which relies on vma->vm_ops->pagesize()) in case
of is_zone_device_page().
The main complication though of doing this is that at this point you don’t yet have the PFN
that is retrieved by try_async_pf(). So maybe you should consider modifying the order of calls
in tdp_page_fault() & FNAME(page_fault)().
