Yes, understood. Considering the below case:

Subpages 0, 1, 2, 3 are PTE mapped. Once subpage 0 is copied
release_pte_page() would be called then the whole THP would be
unlocked and putback to lru, then the loop would iterate to subpage 1,
2 and 3, but the page is not locked and on lru already. Is it
intentional?
