Apologies for the delayed response here. Any split in the test will break it's
monolithic structure which is not desirable. Also lack of an explicit dependency
between HAVE_ARCH_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE and HAVE_ARCH_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_PUD
makes it difficult to group together fallback dummy stubs from various THP
related test functions here. I am planning to re-spin this patch sooner with
some more tests while also accommodating other previous comments. Hence, will
probably note down this aspect which can then be discussed further if required.
