Right, how about this:

By default transparent hugepage support is disabled in order that avoid to risk
increase the memory footprint of applications w/o a guaranteed benefit, and
khugepaged scans all mappings when transparent hugepage enabled.
Defrag is invoked by khugepaged hugepage allocations and by page faults for all
hugepage allocations.
