---------------------------------------------
heap-overflow/2250 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&mm->page_table_lock){--..}, at: [<c0000000000cf2e8>] .copy_hugetlb_page_range+0x108/0x280

but task is already holding lock:

other info that might help us debug this:

Fix is the same way that mm/memory.c copy_page_range does the
lockdep annotation.
