mm: let mm_find_pmd fix buggy race with THP fault

Trinity has reported:

    BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000018
    IP: __lock_acquire (kernel/locking/lockdep.c:3070 (discriminator 1))
    CPU: 6 PID: 16173 Comm: trinity-c364 Tainted: G        W

I believe this comes about because, whereas collapsing and splitting THP
functions take anon_vma lock in write mode (which excludes concurrent
rmap walks), faulting THP functions (write protection and misplaced
NUMA) do not - and mostly they do not need to.

But they do use a pmdp_clear_flush(), set_pmd_at() sequence which, for
an instant (indeed, for a long instant, given the inter-CPU TLB flush in
there), leaves *pmd neither present not trans_huge.

Which can confuse a concurrent rmap walk, as when removing migration
ptes, seen in the dumped trace.  Although that rmap walk has a 4k page
to insert, anon_vmas containing THPs are in no way segregated from
4k-page anon_vmas, so the 4k-intent mm_find_pmd() does need to cope with
that instant when a trans_huge pmd is temporarily absent.

I don't think we need strengthen the locking at the THP end: it's easily
handled with an ACCESS_ONCE() before testing both conditions.

And since mm_find_pmd() had only one caller who wanted a THP rather than
a pmd, let's slightly repurpose it to fail when it hits a THP or
non-present pmd, and open code split_huge_page_address() again.
