Aneesh Kumar K.V - March 6, 2013, 6:10 a.m.
From: "Aneesh Kumar K.V" <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

We allocate one page for the last level of linux page table. With THP and
large page size of 16MB, that would mean we are be wasting large part
of that page. To map 16MB area, we only need a PTE space of 2K with 64K
page size. This patch reduce the space wastage by sharing the page
allocated for the last level of linux page table with multiple pmd
entries. We call these smaller chunks PTE page fragments and allocated
page, PTE page. We use the page->_mapcount as bitmap to indicate which
PTE fragments are free.

page->_mapcount is divided into two halves. The upper half is used for
tracking the freed page framents in the RCU grace period.

In order to support systems which doesn't have 64K HPTE support, we also
add another 2K to PTE page fragment. The second half of the PTE fragments
is used for storing slot and secondary bit information of an HPTE. With this
we now have a 4K PTE fragment.
