mm, gup: ensure real head page is ref-counted when using hugepages
When speculatively taking references to a hugepage using page_cache_add_speculative() in gup_huge_pmd(), it is assumed that the page returned by pmd_page() is the head page. Although normally true, this assumption doesn't hold when the hugepage comprises of successive page table entries such as when using contiguous bit on arm64 at PTE or PMD levels. This can be addressed by ensuring that the page passed to page_cache_add_speculative() is the real head or by de-referencing the head page within the function. We take the first approach to keep the usage pattern aligned with page_cache_get_speculative() where users already pass the appropriate page, i.e., the de-referenced head. Apply the same logic to fix gup_huge_[pud|pgd]() as well.
