Revert "Ignore madvise(MADV_WILLNEED) for hugetlbfs-backed regions"
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 13 May 2009 15:29:12 +0000 (08:29 -0700)]
This reverts commit a425a638c858fd10370b573bde81df3ba500e271.

Now that the previous commit removed the "readpage" actor for hugetlb
files, read-ahead will no longer mess up the mapping, and there's no
longer any reason to treat hugetlbfs mappings specially.
