As explained in https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1047003/
architectures like ppc64 have a hypervisor assisted mechanism to indicate
where to find gigantic huge pages(16G pages). At this point, we don't use this
reserved pages for anything other than hugetlb backing and hence there
is no runtime free of this pages needed ( Also we don't do
runtime allocation of them).

I guess you can still achieve what you want to do in this patch by
keeping gigantic_page_supported()?

NOTE: We should rename gigantic_page_supported to be more specific to
support for runtime_alloc/free of gigantic pages
