Commit f1e61557f023 ("mm: pack compound_dtor and compound_order into one word
in struct page") changed compound_dtor from a pointer to an array index in
order to pack it. To check if page has the hugeltbfs compound_dtor, we can
just compare the index directly without fetching the function pointer.
Said commit did that with PageHuge() and we can do the same with PageHeadHuge()
to make the code a bit smaller and faster.

We've been running with this patch for a few years and it works as

We use literaly the same check in the function next to this one --
PageHuge().
