Correct.  One other easy way to allocate huge pages without reserves
(that I know is used today) is via the fallocate system call.

Correct.  At page allocation time we can easily check to see if a reservation
exists and not charge.  For any specific page within a hugetlbfs file,
a charge would happen at mmap time or allocation time.

One exception (that I can think of) to this mmap(RESERVE) will not cause
a SIGBUS rule is in the case of hole punch.  If someone punches a hole in
a file, not only do they remove pages associated with the file but the
reservation information as well.  Therefore, a subsequent fault will be
the same as an allocation without reservation.

I 'think' the code to remove/truncate a file will work corrctly as it
is today, but I need to think about this some more.

Sorry, but I can not provide cgroup expertise.
