No, it wasn't that interesting, I'd have been more concerned if it was
like that. Amusing idea though: because the act of adding a thp tail
to lru would clear the very bit that says it's a tail.

if (!PageLRU(page) || !PageUnevictable(page))
continue;

Let's see: PageLRU and PageUnevictable are both of the PF_HEAD type,
so permitted on tails, but always redirecting to head: so typically
PageLRU(page) would be true, because head on lru; but PageUnevictable(page)
would be false on tail, because head has already been moved to an evictable
lru by this same function. So it safely went the "continue" way, but
without incrementing pgrescued.
