That is the latest home/release for libhugetlbfs.

The libhugetlbfs test suite is somewhat strange in that I suspect it started
as testing for libhugetlbfs itself. When it was written, the thought may have
been that people would use libhugetlfs as the primary interface to hugetlb
pages. That is not the case today. Over time, hugetlbfs tests not associated
with libhugetlbfs were added.

If we want to migrate libhugetlbfs tests, then I think we would only want to
migrate the non-libhugetlbfs test cases. Although, the libhugetlbfs specific
tests are useful as they 'could' point out regressions.

Added Eric (libhugetlbfs maintainer) on Cc for another opinion.
