Subject: [patch] mm, thp: fix mlock statistics

NR_MLOCK is only accounted in single page units: there's no logic to
handle transparent hugepages.  This patch checks the appropriate number
of pages to adjust the statistics by so that the correct amount of memory
is reflected.

Currently:

		$ grep Mlocked /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:           19636 kB

	#define MAP_SIZE	(4 << 30)	/* 4GB */

	void *ptr = mmap(NULL, MAP_SIZE, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE,
			 MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS, 0, 0);
	mlock(ptr, MAP_SIZE);

		$ grep Mlocked /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:           29844 kB

	munlock(ptr, MAP_SIZE);

		$ grep Mlocked /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:           19636 kB

And with this patch:

		$ grep Mlock /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:           19636 kB

	mlock(ptr, MAP_SIZE);

		$ grep Mlock /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:         4213664 kB

	munlock(ptr, MAP_SIZE);

		$ grep Mlock /proc/meminfo
		Mlocked:           19636 kB
