Hmm, is this usage (calling thp_head() to extract the head page from an
arbitrary page reference) a common enough idiom that it doesn't need a
comment saying why we need the head page?

I'm asking that genuinely-- thp_head() is new to me but maybe it's super
obvious to everyone else?  Or at least the mm developers?  I suspect
that might be the case....?

Aside from that question, this looks fine to me.

Also, I was sort of thinking about sending a patch to Linus at the end
of the merge window moving all the remap/clone/dedupe common code to a
separate file to declutter fs/read_write.c and mm/filemap.c.  Does that
sound ok?
