I did change how the XArray works for THP recently.

Kirill's original patch stored:

512: p
513: p+1
514: p+2
...
1023: p+511

A couple of years ago, I changed it to store:

512: p
513: p
514: p
...
1023: p

And in January, Linus merged the commit which changes it to:

512-575: p
576-639: (sibling of 512)
640-703: (sibling of 512)
...
960-1023: (sibling of 512)

That is, I removed a level of the tree and store sibling entries
rather than duplicate entries. That wasn't for fun; I needed to do
that in order to make msync() work with large folios. Commit
6b24ca4a1a8d has more detail and hopefully can inspire whatever
changes you need to make to your patch.
