Yes.  hugetlbfs is memory resident only with no writeback.
This comment and name should have been updated when hugetlbfs support was

Also, ideally all the memfd related function names of the form shmem_* should
have been changed to memfd_* when hugetlbfs support was added.  Some of them
were changed, but not all.

I can clean all this up.  But, I would want to do it in patch 2 of the series.
That is where other cleanup such as this was done before code movement.

Will wait a little while for any additional comments before sending series
