SubjectRe: [PATCH v4] mm/hugetlb: Fix unsigned overflow in __nr_hugepages_store_common()

Hi Mike,

I still thnk that we could just get rid of the NODEMASK_ALLOC machinery
here, it adds a needlessly complexity IMHO.
Note that before "(5df66d306ec9: mm: fix comment for NODEMASK_ALLOC)",
the comment about the size was wrong, showing a much bigger size that it
actually was, and I would not be surprised if people started to add
NODEMASK_ALLOC here and there because of that.

Actually, there was a little talk about removing NODEMASK_ALLOC altogether,
but some further checks must be done before.

But the overall change looks good to me:
