must call this function before exit process.

BTW, is it better to first set hugepg_tbl[i].orig_vato NULL, then unlink
filepath?
It may be not a good idea to first remove then set to NULL.

If first set hugepg_tbl[i].orig_va to NULL,then failed to unlink you have to restore hugepg_tbl[i].orig_va.
So I first to unlink for less codes.

But it may be a big issue(not safe) when you unlink the path before you
set the pointer to NULL,  another thing is , why you need to restore the
orig_va since the app will exit? Even you need to restore it just one or
two lines code, I think it is not a big deal.

Thank you,Michael

Yes,it's not safe to unlink the path before set the pointer to NULL.I will fix it.

BTW.is need to return error when failed to unlink?May be not need?

I would say, don't exit just because one couldn't be freed. Free everything 
you can but exit with an error so people can know what happened.

Thanks for the patch, good idea!

Thanks for raising the need.
There is a discussion in the thread of the first version of this patch.
Neil suggests an automatic clean-up with hugepage refcounting.
It seems to be a good idea.

So this patch won't be integrated as is.
