The patch will drop the down_write from the exit path which is, I
believe the right thing to do, so it would paper over an existing
problem when khugepaged could get stuck with mmap_sem held for read (if
that is really a problem). So reproducing without the patch still makes
some sense.

Testing with the patch makes some sense as well, but I would like to
hear from Andrea whether the approach is good because I am wondering why
he hasn't done that before - it feels so much simpler than the current
code.

Anyway, thanks a lot for testing!
