Subject: mm,hwpoison: rework soft offline for in-use pages

This patch changes the way we set and handle in-use poisoned pages.  Until
now, poisoned pages were released to the buddy allocator, trusting that
the checks that take place at allocation time would act as a safe net and
would skip that page.

This has proved to be wrong, as we got some pfn walkers out there, like
compaction, that all they care is the page to be in a buddy freelist.

Although this might not be the only user, having poisoned pages in the
buddy allocator seems a bad idea as we should only have free pages that
are ready and meant to be used as such.

Before explaining the taken approach, let us break down the kind of pages
we can soft offline.

- Anonymous THP (after the split, they end up being 4K pages)
- Hugetlb
- Order-0 pages (that can be either migrated or invalited)

* Normal pages (order-0 and anon-THP)

  - If they are clean and unmapped page cache pages, we invalidate
    then by means of invalidate_inode_page().
  - If they are mapped/dirty, we do the isolate-and-migrate dance.

Either way, do not call put_page directly from those paths.  Instead, we
keep the page and send it to page_handle_poison to perform the right
handling.

page_handle_poison sets the HWPoison flag and does the last put_page.

Down the chain, we placed a check for HWPoison page in
free_pages_prepare, that just skips any poisoned page, so those pages
do not end up in any pcplist/freelist.

After that, we set the refcount on the page to 1 and we increment
the poisoned pages counter.

If we see that the check in free_pages_prepare creates trouble, we can
always do what we do for free pages:

  - wait until the page hits buddy's freelists
  - take it off, and flag it

The downside of the above approach is that we could race with an
allocation, so by the time we  want to take the page off the buddy, the
page has been already allocated so we cannot soft offline it.
But the user could always retry it.

* Hugetlb pages

  - We isolate-and-migrate them

After the migration has been successful, we call dissolve_free_huge_page,
and we set HWPoison on the page if we succeed.
Hugetlb has a slightly different handling though.

While for non-hugetlb pages we cared about closing the race with an
allocation, doing so for hugetlb pages requires quite some additional
and intrusive code (we would need to hook in free_huge_page and some other
places).
So I decided to not make the code overly complicated and just fail
normally if the page we allocated in the meantime.

We can always build on top of this.

As a bonus, because of the way we handle now in-use pages, we no longer
need the put-as-isolation-migratetype dance, that was guarding for poisoned
pages to end up in pcplists.
