mm: follow_hugetlb_page flags
follow_hugetlb_page() shouldn't be guessing about the coredump case either: pass the foll_flags down to it, instead of just the write bit. Remove that obscure huge_zeropage_ok() test. The decision is easy, though unlike the non-huge case - here vm_ops->fault is always set. But we know that a fault would serve up zeroes, unless there's already a hugetlbfs pagecache page to back the range. (Alternatively, since hugetlb pages aren't swapped out under pressure, you could save more dump space by arguing that a page not yet faulted into this process cannot be relevant to the dump; but that would be more surprising.)
