Subject: [PATCHv2 04/12] mm: fix handling PTE-mapped THPs in page_idle_clear_pte_refs()

For PTE-mapped THP page_check_address_transhuge() is not adequate: it
cannot find all relevant PTEs, only the first one.i

Let's switch it to page_vma_mapped_walk().

I don't think it's subject for stable@: it's not fatal.
