[PATCH] fix NUMA interleaving for huge pages
Since vma->vm_pgoff is in units of smallpages, VMAs for huge pages have the lower HPAGE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT bits always cleared, which results in badd offsets to the interleave functions. Take this difference from small pages into account when calculating the offset. This does add a 0-bit shift into the small-page path (via alloc_page_vma()), but I think that is negligible. Also add a BUG_ON to prevent the offset from growing due to a negative right-shift, which probably shouldn't be allowed anyways. Tested on an 8-memory node ppc64 NUMA box and got the interleaving I expected.
