The function name should be hugetlb_default_size_setup in
sync with the generic function hugetlb_default_setup for the
same parameter default_hugepagesz.

Yes, makes sense to me.

+ unsigned long long size;
+ size = memparse(str, &str);
+ if (add_huge_page_size(size) != 0) {

I am little bit confused here. Do we always follow another
'hugepages=' element after 'default_hugepagesz' ? If not,
then we dont have to do 'add_huge_page_size'. But then
that function checks for valid huge page sizes and skips
adding hstate if its already added. So I guess it okay.

'default_hugepagesz=' is not always followed by 'hugepages=', but if we specify 'hugepages=' along with 'default_hugepagesz=' it will try to allocate the hugepage size specified. If the size is not supported by hardware, it will try to allocate the number of pages specified with the default hugepage size of the arch, which is not the desired behavior. So calling add_huge_page_size would verify if the hugepage size is supported and in case it's not, hugepages will not be allocated.

+ hugetlb_bad_size();
+ pr_err("Invalid default huge page size specified(%llu)\n", size);

Error message should have 'ppc' some where to indicate that
the arch rejected the size not core MM.
