BTW, wouldn't this unlock the whole THP and put it back to LRU? Then
we may copy the following PTE mapped pages with page unlocked and on
LRU. I don't see critical problem, just the pages might be on and off
LRU by others, i.e. vmscan, compaction, migration, etc. But no one
could take the page away since try_to_unmap() would fail, but not very
productive.
