Patchset SRU

[Impact]
* VMs have a high chance to hit guest migration issues if more than one guest migration happens at a time, while using THP on ppc64le.

* Migrating VMs in parallel will cause at least one guest to crash about half the time. Since VM migration is a upgrade/uptime strategy this has a fairly large customer impact.

* The uploaded patches correct the behavior of THP on guests. They are available on v4.18.x onwards.

[Test Case]

* One can reproduce the bug by trying two guest migrations, at the same time, following this instructions on comment 12: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qemu/+bug/1788098/comments/12

[Regression Potential]

* These patches are already on linux-stable since v4.18.15 (also on hwe), so there is low regression chance.
