4th argument passed to pudp_huge_get_and_clear_full() is not used.
Is it fine to remove *int full * in  pudp_huge_get_and_clear_full() if
there is no plan to use it in future ?

This is applicable to below functions as well -
pmdp_huge_get_and_clear_full()
ptep_get_and_clear_full()
pte_clear_not_present_full()
