[PATCH] kexec: Export free_huge_page to VMCOREINFO

From: Atsushi Kumagai
Date: Fri Jul 11 2014 - 06:41:14 EST

PG_head_mask was added into VMCOREINFO to filter huge pages in
commit:b3acc56bfe1(kexec: save PG_head_mask in VMCOREINFO), but
makedumpfile still need another symbol to filter *hugetlbfs* pages.

If a user hope to filter user pages, makedumpfile tries to exclude
them by checking the condition whether the page is anonymous, but
hugetlbfs pages aren't anonymous while they also be user pages.

We know it's possible to detect them in the same way as PageHuge(),
so we need the start address of free_huge_page():

int PageHuge(struct page *page)
if (!PageCompound(page))
return 0;

page = compound_head(page);
return get_compound_page_dtor(page) == free_huge_page;

For that reason, this patch changes free_huge_page() into public
to export it to VMCOREINFO.
