Reverting these commits was reported to solve the problem for Alexander. Despite the reason for these commits, NUMA balancing is not the direct source of the problem. split_huge_page() expects the anon_vma lock to be exclusive to serialise the whole split operation. Ordinarily it is expected that the anon_vma lock would only be required when updating the avcs but THP also uses the anon_vma rwsem for collapse and split operations where the page lock or compound lock cannot be used (as the page is changing from base to THP or vice versa) and the page table locks are insufficient. This patch takes the anon_vma lock for write to serialise against parallel split_huge_page as THP expected before the conversion to rwsem.
