Subject: [PATCHv12 06/37] mm: handle PTE-mapped tail pages in gerneric fast gup implementaiton

With new refcounting we are going to see THP tail pages mapped with PTE.
Generic fast GUP rely on page_cache_get_speculative() to obtain
reference on page. page_cache_get_speculative() always fails on tail
pages, because ->_count on tail pages is always zero.

Let's handle tail pages in gup_pte_range().

New split_huge_page() will rely on migration entries to freeze page's
counts. Recheck PTE value after page_cache_get_speculative() on head
page should be enough to serialize against split.
