You did not answer this question: is freeing boottime gigantic pages
"forbidden" or just
not needed ?

I see, that avoids a new define. However, it is not consistent with the
rest of function definitions
in generic hugetlb.h. What do you think ? Should I follow the same
format ? Or use yours ?

I'll restore the check in update_and_free_page too depending on your
answer to the above question,
since adding this check back would not allow to free boottime gigantic
pages.
