Thanks for noticing Aneesh.

I can't find a better solution than bringing back
gigantic_page_supported check,
since it is must be done at runtime in your case.
I'm not sure of one thing though: you say that freeing boottime gigantic
pages
is not needed, but is it forbidden ? Just to know where the check and
what its
new name should be.
Is something like that (on top of this series) ok for you (and everyone
else) before
I send a v7:
