That's for hugetlbfs:

if (!PageCompound(page))
return 0;

page = compound_head(page);
return page[1].compound_dtor == HUGETLB_PAGE_DTOR;

Would this help?

-static inline struct page *find_subpage(struct page *page, pgoff_t offset)
+/*
+ * Given the page we found in the page cache, return the page corresponding
+ * to this offset in the file
+ */
+static inline struct page *find_subpage(struct page *head, pgoff_t offset)
{
- if (PageHuge(page))
- return page;
+ /* HugeTLBfs wants the head page regardless */
+ if (PageHuge(head))
+ return head;

- VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageTail(page), page);
+ VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageTail(head), head);

- return page + (offset & (hpage_nr_pages(page) - 1));
+ return head + (offset & (hpage_nr_pages(head) - 1));
}
