UFFD_WP is used now for anonymouse already.. And the support for hugetlbfs and
shmem is in rfc stage on the list.

Is it possible to use CONFIG_ARCH_USES_HIGH_VMA_FLAGS here?  So far uffd-wp is
only working for 64 bit x86 too due to enlarged pte space.  Maybe we can also
let minor mode to only support 64 bit hosts.

Thanks,
