split_huge_page() will never call on a page which isn't on lru list, so
this code never got a chance to run, and should not be run, to add tail
pages on a lru list which head page isn't there.

Although the bug was never triggered, it'better be removed for code

BTW, it looks better to have a WARN() set in the wrong path, but the
path will be changed in incoming new page isolation func. So just save
it now.
