Please see previous code, we'll use the original pte value to check if
it is uffd-wp armed, and if need to mark it dirty though the hugetlbfs
is set noop_dirty_folio().

pte_install_uffd_wp_if_needed(vma, address, pvmw.pte, pteval);

/* Set the dirty flag on the folio now the pte is gone. */
if (pte_dirty(pteval))
folio_mark_dirty(folio);
