Subject: [PATCH v8 2/6] userfaultfd: disable huge PMD sharing for MINOR
 registered VMAs

As the comment says: for the MINOR fault use case, although the page
might be present and populated in the other (non-UFFD-registered) half
of the mapping, it may be out of date, and we explicitly want userspace
to get a minor fault so it can check and potentially update the page's
contents.

Huge PMD sharing would prevent these faults from occurring for
suitably aligned areas, so disable it upon UFFD registration.
