Subject: mm/hugetlb: avoid looping to the same hugepage if !pages and !vmas

When mmapping an existing hugetlbfs file with MAP_POPULATE, we find it is
very time consuming.  For example, mmapping a 128GB file takes about 50
milliseconds.  Sampling with perfevent shows it spends 99% time in the
same_page loop in follow_hugetlb_page().

samples: 205  of event 'cycles', Event count (approx.): 136686374
-  99.04%  test_mmap_huget  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] follow_hugetlb_page
        follow_hugetlb_page
        __get_user_pages
        __mlock_vma_pages_range
        __mm_populate
        vm_mmap_pgoff
        sys_mmap_pgoff
        sys_mmap
        system_call_fastpath
        __mmap64

follow_hugetlb_page() is called with pages=NULL and vmas=NULL, so for each
hugepage, we run into the same_page loop for pages_per_huge_page() times,
but doing nothing.  With this change, it takes less then 1 millisecond to
mmap a 128GB file in hugetlbfs.
