This is a neat idea but the code footprint is really non trivial. To a
very tricky code which hugetlb is unfortunately.

Saving 1,6% of memory is definitely interesting especially for 1GB pages
which tend to be more static and where the savings are more visible.

Anyway, I haven't seen any runtime overhead analysis here. What is the
price to modify the vmemmap page tables and make them pte rather than
pmd based (especially for 2MB hugetlb). Also, how expensive is the
vmemmap page tables reconstruction on the freeing path?

Thanks!
