    hugetlb: ensure we do not reference a surplus page after handing it to buddy
    When we free a page via free_huge_page and we detect that we are in surplus
    the page will be returned to the buddy.  After this we no longer own the 
    However at the end free_huge_page we clear out our mapping pointer from
    page private.  Even where the page is not a surplus we free the page to
    the hugepage pool, drop the pool locks and then clear page private.  In
    either case the page may have been reallocated.  BAD.
    Make sure we clear out page private before we free the page.
