Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] mm, page_owner: handle THP splits correctly
THP splitting path is missing the split_page_owner() call that split_page()
has. As a result, split THP pages are wrongly reported in the page_owner file
as order-9 pages. Furthermore when the former head page is freed, the remaining
former tail pages are not listed in the page_owner file at all. This patch
fixes that by adding the split_page_owner() call into __split_huge_page().

Fixes: a9627bc5e34e ("mm/page_owner: introduce split_page_owner and replace manual handling")
