mm: hugetlb: define system call hugetlb size encodings in single file
Patch series "Consolidate system call hugetlb page size encodings". These patches are the result of discussions in https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/3/8/548. The following changes are made in the patch set: 1) Put all the log2 encoded huge page size definitions in a common header file. The idea is have a set of definitions that can be use as the basis for system call specific definitions such as MAP_HUGE_* and SHM_HUGE_*. 2) Remove MAP_HUGE_* definitions in arch specific files. All these definitions are the same. Consolidate all definitions in the primary user header file (uapi/linux/mman.h). 3) Remove SHM_HUGE_* definitions intended for user space from kernel header file, and add to user (uapi/linux/shm.h) header file. Add definitions for all known huge page size encodings as in mmap. This patch (of 3): If hugetlb pages are requested in mmap or shmget system calls, a huge page size other than default can be requested. This is accomplished by encoding the log2 of the huge page size in the upper bits of the flag argument. asm-generic and arch specific headers all define the same values for these encodings. Put common definitions in a single header file. The primary uapi header files for mmap and shm will use these definitions as a basis for definitions specific to those system calls.

+ * Several system calls take a flag to request "hugetlb" huge pages.
+ * Without further specification, these system calls will use the
+ * system's default huge page size. If a system supports multiple
+ * huge page sizes, the desired huge page size can be specified in
+ * bits [26:31] of the flag arguments. The value in these 6 bits
+ * will encode the log2 of the huge page size.
+ *
+ * The following definitions are associated with this huge page size
+ * encoding in flag arguments. System call specific header files
+ * that use this encoding should include this file. They can then
+ * provide definitions based on these with their own specific prefix.
+ * for example:
+ * #define MAP_HUGE_SHIFT HUGETLB_FLAG_ENCODE_SHIFT
