To support memory keys, we moved the hash pte slot information to the second
half of the page table. This was ok with PTE entries at level 4 and level 3.
We already allocate larger page table pages at those level to accomodate extra
details. For level 4 we already have the extra space which was used to track
4k hash page table entry details and at pmd level the extra space was allocated
to track the THP details.

With hugetlbfs PTE, we used this extra space at the PMD level to store the
slot details. But we also support hugetlbfs PTE at PUD leve and PUD level page
didn't allocate extra space. This resulted in memory corruption.

Fix this by allocating extra space at PUD level when HUGETLB is enabled. We
may need further changes to allocate larger space at PMD level when we enable
HUGETLB. That will be done in next patch.

hmm.. did not know that hugetlbs operated at the PUD level. Thanks for
catching this.

This is a typo. Should be 'pud' not a 'pmd'.

#define PUD_CACHE_INDEX __pud_cache_index

Thanks fixed that.
