We need count in the number of base pages. The same counter is
modified by vmscan in base page unit. Also need modify the inc path.

I don't quite understand why we need the above check. My understanding
is when we scan the ptes, once the first PTE mapped subpage is found,
then the THP would be added into compound_pagelist, then the later
loop would find the same THP on the list then just break the loop. Did
I miss anything?
