Sorry about that.  Yes, odd that it should only hit now: the false
PageTransCompound in shmem_punch_compound() has always been good
enough to handle it for me, but maybe Randy is trying a less able
compiler, or maybe unrelated changes in linux-next have just made
it harder for the compiler to see the optimization.

I hope the patch below fixes it?

[PATCH] mm/shmem: fix build without THP

Some optimizers don't notice that shmem_punch_compound() is always true
(PageTransCompound() being false) without CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE=y:
use IS_ENABLED to help them to avoid the BUILD_BUG inside HPAGE_PMD_NR.

Fixes: 71725ed10c40 ("mm: huge tmpfs: try to split_huge_page() when punching hole")
