Any other secondary MMU notifier manager (KVM is just one of the many
MMU notifier users) will need the same information if it doesn't want
to run a flood of get_user_pages_fast and it can support multiple
granularity in the secondary MMU mappings, so I think it is justified
to be exposed not just to KVM.

The other option would be to move transparent_hugepage_adjust to
mm/huge_memory.c but that currently has all kind of KVM data
structures in it, so it's definitely not a cut-and-paste work, so I
couldn't do a fix as cleaner as this one for 4.6.
