int memkind_hugetlb_check_available_2mb(struct memkind *kind);
int memkind_hugetlb_get_mmap_flags(struct memkind *kind, int *flags);
void memkind_hugetlb_init_once(void);

Description

The hugetlb memory memkind operations enable memory kinds which use the Linux hugetlbfs file system.  For more information about the hugetlbfs see link below.
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/vm/hugetlbpage.txt

memkind_hugetlb_check_available_2mb() Check if there are 2MB pages reserved in the default hugetlbfs.  If the kind implements ops.get_mbind_nodemask(), then only the NUMA nodes set by the nodemask are checked, otherwise every NUMA node is checked.

memkind_hugetlb_get_mmap_flags() Sets the flags for the mmap() system call such that the hugetlbfs is utilized for allocations.

memkind_hugetlb_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HUGETLB kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hugetlb_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.
