The other is that this almost certainly broken for transhuge page
handling. gup returns the head and tail pages and ordinarily this is ok
When need gup thp? in kvm case?
gup just pins the wanted pages(for x86 is 4k size) of user address space in memory.
We can't expect the pages have been allocated for user address space are thp or
normal page. So we need to deal with them and I think it have nothing to do with kvm.

Ok, I'm curious about userspace process call which funtion(will call gup) to pin pages except make_pages_present?
