Yes. We discussed that huge_zero_page might fail, so we concluded that
we needed an api that can return arbitrary folio order that will not
your point about it possibly failing is correct.  so i think we need an
api which definitely returns a folio, but it might be of arbitrary

I couldn't come up with implementing your latter suggestion, so I
informed darrick that let's use this patch for now, and add the
arbitrary folio order with zero as a later enhancement.

If we want to use mm_huge_zero_page, then this should work:

Let me know if we should go for this or let's keep the original patch
and add a ZERO_FOLIO_ORDER API that will not fail and use it as a later
