It took me a while to set up an environment to reproduce. I was finally
able to reproduce on an x86_64 VM running a 32 bit OS/5.6.0-rc7-next-20200330

My first attempt with PAE enabled and 8GB of memory did not reproduce. When
I disabled PAE and dropped memory to 4GB, the problem reproduced.

After reverting this patch, and the followup in the series I was still able
to recreate the issue. So, the patches are not the root cause.

One 'interesting' thing are the messages,
mm/pgtable-generic.c:50: bad pgd ...
These show up before the hugetlbfs BUG.

I will continue to investigate. However, if the 'bad pgd ..' message provides
a hint to someone please let us know.
