This is to improve page boundaries checking and should probably
be cc:stable. I came accross this while debugging nvlink2 passthrough
but the lack of checking might be exploited by the existing userspace.

The get_user_pages() comment says it should be "phased out" but the only
alternative seems to be get_user_pages_longterm(), should that be used
instead (this is longterm reference elevation, however it is not DAX,
whatever this implies)? get_user_pages_remote() seems unnecessarily
complicated because of @locked.

* 2/2: read pageshift from pte

* 2/2: changed compound pages handling

* 2/2: implemented less strict but still safe max pageshift as David suggested

* enforced huge pages not to cross preregistered chunk boundaries

* 2/2: explicitly check for compound pages before calling compound_order()

This is based on sha1
1e4b044 Linus Torvalds "Linux 4.18-rc4".

Please comment. Thanks.
