Hm.. For some reason CRIU memory-snapshotting test cases fail on current
linux-next. I didn't debug why. Mainline works. Folks?

Below is patch which applies on linux-next, but I wasn't able to test it.

Cyrill, Pavel, could you take care of this?

Sure.

Subject: [PATCH] mm: /prom/pid/clear_refs: avoid split_huge_page()

Currently pagewalker splits all THP pages on any clear_refs request.
It's not necessary. We can handle this on PMD level.

One side effect is that soft dirty will potentially see more dirty
memory, since we will mark whole THP page dirty at once.

Sanity checked with CRIU test suite. More testing is required.
