I was actually wondering about whether 4K page size in hash config
supports THP and could enable CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE ? But as
there is a BUG() trigger on hash__pmd_mkhuge(), it seems like THP
config should not have been enabled for such platforms but it does
for some reason. Could not we disable it ?
