mm, hugetlb: use pte_present() instead of pmd_present() in follow_huge_pmd()

I found the race condition which triggers the following bug when
move_pages() and soft offline are called on a single hugetlb page

    Soft offlining page 0x119400 at 0x700000000000

    Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception
    Kernel Offset: disabled

This bug is triggered when pmd_present() returns true for non-present
hugetlb, so fixing the present check in follow_huge_pmd() prevents it.
Using pmd_present() to determine present/non-present for hugetlb is not
correct, because pmd_present() checks multiple bits (not only
_PAGE_PRESENT) for historical reason and it can misjudge hugetlb state.

Fixes: e66f17ff ("mm/hugetlb: take page table lock in follow_huge_pmd()")
