mm/thp: decrease nr_thps in file's mapping on THP split
[ Upstream commit 1ca7554d05ac038c98271f8968ed821266ecaa9c ] Decrease nr_thps counter in file's mapping to ensure that the page cache won't be dropped excessively on file write access if page has been already split. I've tried a test scenario running a big binary, kernel remaps it with THPs, then force a THP split with /sys/kernel/debug/split_huge_pages. During any further open of that binary with O_RDWR or O_WRITEONLY kernel drops page cache for it, because of non-zero thps counter.
