When I test this case on cenots7.8GA, thp04 will trigger ltp default timeout
and it can't be killed even its process stat is R(running). After looking code
and documentation, I found it also triggers another kernel bug(infinite loop).
commit 8310d48b125d ("mm/huge_memory.c: respect FOLL_FORCE/FOLL_COW for thp")
fix this.

Also, when I backport cve-2017-1000405 patch into centos7.8ga, this case still
passed and it is not enough to cover the another bug. I will add a new test case
to test the another bug.

Adding a url to make user know huge dirty cow bug easily.
