kexec: export free_huge_page to VMCOREINFO
PG_head_mask was added into VMCOREINFO to filter huge pages in 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.
