When the page is already poisoned, another memory_failure() call in the
same page now returns 0, meaning OK. For nested memory mce handling, this
behavior may lead to one mce looping, Example:

1. When LCME is enabled, and there are two processes A && B running on
different core X && Y separately, which will access one same page, then
the page corrupted when process A access it, a MCE will be rasied to
core X and the error process is just underway.

2. Then B access the page and trigger another MCE to core Y, it will also
do error process, it will see TestSetPageHWPoison be true, and 0 is

3. The kill_me_maybe will check the return:

    1244 static void kill_me_maybe(struct callback_head *cb)
    1245 {
    1254         if (!memory_failure(p->mce_addr >> PAGE_SHIFT, flags) &&
    1255             !(p->mce_kflags & MCE_IN_KERNEL_COPYIN)) {
    1256                 set_mce_nospec(p->mce_addr >> PAGE_SHIFT, p->mce_whole_page);
    1257                 sync_core();
    1258                 return;
    1259         }
    1267 }

4. The error process for B will end, and may nothing happened if
kill-early is not set, The process B will re-excute instruction and get
into mce again and then loop happens. And also the set_mce_nospec()
here is not proper, may refer to commit fd0e786d9d09 ("x86/mm,
mm/hwpoison: Don't unconditionally unmap kernel 1:1 pages").

For other cases which care the return value of memory_failure() should
check why they want to process a memory error which have already been
processed. This behavior seems reasonable.
