So just above the quoted code is a

if (PageHuge(page))
return page;

So how can we get into a compound page that is not a huge page, but
only if THP is enabled? (Yes, maybe I'm a little rusty on VM
internals).

Can you add comments describing the use case of this function and why
it does all these checks? It looks like black magic to me.
