... and while we are at it, I really wonder what's going on with
that gemfs thing - among the other things, this is the only
user of shmem_file_setup_with_mnt().  Sure, you want your own
options, but that brings another question - is there any reason
for having the huge=... per-superblock rather than per-file?

After all, the readers of ->huge in mm/shmem.c are
mm/shmem.c:582:     (shmem_huge == SHMEM_HUGE_FORCE || sbinfo->huge) &&
	is_huge_enabled(), sbinfo is an explicit argument

mm/shmem.c:1799:        switch (sbinfo->huge) {
	shmem_getpage_gfp(), sbinfo comes from inode

mm/shmem.c:2113:                if (SHMEM_SB(sb)->huge == SHMEM_HUGE_NEVER)
	shmem_get_unmapped_area(), sb comes from file

mm/shmem.c:3531:        if (sbinfo->huge)
mm/shmem.c:3532:                seq_printf(seq, ",huge=%s", shmem_format_huge(sbinfo->huge));
mm/shmem.c:3880:        switch (sbinfo->huge) {
	shmem_huge_enabled(), sbinfo comes from an inode

And the only caller of is_huge_enabled() is shmem_getattr(), with sbinfo
picked from inode.

So is there any reason why the hugepage policy can't be per-file, with
the current being overridable default?
