Subject[PATCH v2 0/6] Speed up mremap on large regions
This version 2 of the mremap speed up patches previously posted at:

mremap time can be optimized by moving entries at the PMD/PUD level if
the source and destination addresses are PMD/PUD-aligned and
PMD/PUD-sized. Enable moving at the PMD and PUD levels on arm64 and
x86. Other architectures where this type of move is supported and known to
be safe can also opt-in to these optimizations by enabling HAVE_MOVE_PMD

Observed Performance Improvements for remapping a PUD-aligned 1GB-sized
region on x86 and arm64:

- HAVE_MOVE_PMD is already enabled on x86 : N/A
- Enabling HAVE_MOVE_PUD on x86 : ~13x speed up

- Enabling HAVE_MOVE_PMD on arm64 : ~ 8x speed up
- Enabling HAVE_MOVE_PUD on arm64 : ~19x speed up

give a total of ~150x speed up on arm64.

Changes in v2:
- Reduce mremap_test time by only validating a configurable
threshold of the remapped region, as per John.
- Use a random pattern for mremap validation. Provide pattern
seed in test output, as per John.
- Moved set_pud_at() to separate patch, per Kirill.
- Use switch() instead of ifs in move_pgt_entry(), per Kirill.
- Update commit message with description of Android
garbage collector use case for HAVE_MOVE_PUD, as per Joel.
- Fix build test error reported by kernel test robot in [1].
