Subject[RFC PATCH 08/31] mm: add pagechain container for storing multiple pages.
Date
From: Zi Yan <ziy@nvidia.com>

When depositing page table pages for 1GB THPs, we need 512 PTE pages +
1 PMD page. Instead of counting and depositing 513 pages, we can use the
PMD page as a leader page and chain the rest 512 PTE pages with ->lru.
This, however, prevents us depositing PMD pages with ->lru, which is
currently used by depositing PTE pages for 2MB THPs. So add a new
pagechain container for PMD pages.
