Oh, this is fun. So we kicked off IO to a hugepage, then truncated or
otherwise caused the page to come free. Then the IO finished and did the
final put on the page ... from interrupt context. Splat. Not something
that's going to happen often, but can happen if a process dies during
IO or due to a userspace bug.

Maybe we should schedule work to do the actual freeing of the page
instead of this rather large patch. It doesn't seem like a case we need
to optimise for.

Further, this path is called from softirq context, not hardirq context.
That means the whole mess could be a spin_lock_bh(), not spin_lock_irq()
which is rather cheaper. Anyway, I think the schedule-freeing-of-a-page-
if-in-irq-context approach is likely to be better.

Don't leave your debugging code in the patch you submit for merging.

This doesn't work. need_resched() is only going to be set due to things
happening in interrupt context. But you've disabled interrupts, so
need_resched() is never going to be set.
