A compound page collects the refcount in the head page, while leaving
the refcount of each tail page at zero. Therefore, when debugging a
problem that involves compound pages, it's best to have diagnostics that
reflect that situation. However, dump_page() is oblivious to these
points.

Change dump_page() as follows:

1) For tail pages, print relevant head page information: refcount, in
   particular. But only do this if the page is not corrupted so badly
   that the pointer to the head page is all wrong.

2) Do a separate check to catch any (rare) cases of the tail page's
   refcount being non-zero, and issue a separate, clear pr_warn() if
   that ever happens.
