I've bisected this problem down to commit:
f2c0507 mm: remove remaining references to NUMA hinting bits and helpers

Essentially the mlock unit test from libhugetlbfs then fails with
hugetlbf_fault being called in an infinite loop.

After this commit is applied we get the following definition of:
static inline int is_swap_pte(pte_t pte)
        return !pte_none(pte);

rather than:
static inline int is_swap_pte(pte_t pte)
        return !pte_none(pte) && !pte_present_nonuma(pte);

(note here that pte_present_nonuma == pte_present on arm64)

I think this is a typo in the patch, as entries should be checked for
present before being determined to be swap or file?
