powerpc: get_hugepte() don't put_page() the wrong page

"page" may have changed to point to the next hugepage after the loop
completed, The references have been taken on the head page, so the
put_page must happen there too.

This is a longstanding issue pre-thp inclusion.

It's totally unclear how these page_cache_add_speculative and
pte_val(pte) != pte_val(*ptep) checks are necessary across all the
powerpc gup_fast code, when x86 doesn't need any of that: there's no way
the page can be freed with irq disabled so we're guaranteed the
atomic_inc will happen on a page with page_count > 0 (so not needing the
speculative check).

The pte check is also meaningless on x86: no need to rollback on x86 if
the pte changed, because the pte can still change a CPU tick after the
check succeeded and it won't be rolled back in that case.  The important
thing is we got a reference on a valid page that was mapped there a CPU
tick ago.  So not knowing the soft tlb refill code of ppc64 in great
detail I'm not removing the "speculative" page_count increase and the
pte checks across all the code, but unless there's a strong reason for
it they should be later cleaned up too.

If a pte can change from huge to non-huge (like it could happen with
THP) passing a pte_t *ptep to gup_hugepte() would also require to repeat
the is_hugepd in gup_hugepte(), but that shouldn't happen with hugetlbfs
only so I'm not altering that.
