Subject: [PATCH v3 03/20] mm, hugetlb: fix subpool accounting handling

There is a case that we attempt to allocate a hugepage with chg = 0 and
avoid_reserve = 1. Although chg = 0 means that it has a reserved hugepage,
we wouldn't use it, since avoid_reserve = 1 represents that we don't want
to allocate a hugepage from a reserved pool. This happens when the parent
process that created a MAP_PRIVATE mapping is about to perform a COW due to
a shared page count and it attempt to satisfy the allocation without using
the existing reserves.

In this case, we would not dequeue a reserved hugepage and, instead, try
to allocate a new hugepage. Therefore, we should check subpool counter
for a new hugepage. This patch implement it.
