Subject: [v2 PATCH 5/8] mm: khugepaged: make khugepaged_enter() void function

The most callers of khugepaged_enter() don't care about the return
value.  Only dup_mmap(), anonymous THP page fault and MADV_HUGEPAGE handle
the error by returning -ENOMEM.  Actually it is not harmful for them to
ignore the error case either.  It also sounds overkilling to fail fork()
and page fault early due to khugepaged_enter() error, and MADV_HUGEPAGE
does set VM_HUGEPAGE flag regardless of the error.
