mm: incorporate zero pages into transparent huge pages
This patch improves THP collapse rates, by allowing zero pages. Currently THP can collapse 4kB pages into a THP when there are up to khugepaged_max_ptes_none pte_none ptes in a 2MB range. This patch counts pte none and mapped zero pages with the same variable. The patch was tested with a program that allocates 800MB of memory, and performs interleaved reads and writes, in a pattern that causes some 2MB areas to first see read accesses, resulting in the zero pfn being mapped there. To simulate memory fragmentation at allocation time, I modified do_huge_pmd_anonymous_page to return VM_FAULT_FALLBACK for read faults. Without the patch, only %50 of the program was collapsed into THP and the percentage did not increase over time. With this patch after 10 minutes of waiting khugepaged had collapsed %99 of the program's memory.
