[PATCH] hugetlb: fix linked list corruption in unmap_hugepage_range()

commit fe1668ae

 causes kernel to oops with
libhugetlbfs test suite.  The problem is that hugetlb pages can be shared
by multiple mappings.  Multiple threads can fight over page->lru in the
unmap path and bad things happen.  We now serialize __unmap_hugepage_range
to void concurrent linked list manipulation.  Such serialization is also
needed for shared page table page on hugetlb area.  This patch will fixed
the bug and also serve as a prepatch for shared page table.
