hugetlb: call arch_prepare_hugepage() for surplus pages
Gerald Schaefer [Tue, 12 Aug 2008 22:08:38 +0000 (15:08 -0700)]
The s390 software large page emulation implements shared page tables by
using page->index of the first tail page from a compound large page to
store page table information.  This is set up in arch_prepare_hugepage(),
which is called from alloc_fresh_huge_page_node().

A similar call to arch_prepare_hugepage() is missing for surplus large
pages that are allocated in alloc_buddy_huge_page(), which breaks the
software emulation mode for (surplus) large pages on s390.  This patch
adds the missing call to arch_prepare_hugepage().  It will have no effect
on other architectures where arch_prepare_hugepage() is a nop.

Also, use the correct order in the error path in alloc_fresh_huge_page_node().
