OK, so what I really wanted is that (1) applying this patch just before
http://ozlabs.org/~akpm/mmots/broken-out/mm-hwpoison-adjust-for-new-thp-refcounting.patch
and (2) removing the following chunk from the mm-hwpoison-adjust-for-new-thp-refcounting.patch:

@@ -1575,7 +1540,7 @@ static int get_any_page(struct page *pag
* Did it turn free?
*/
ret = __get_any_page(page, pfn, 0);
- if (!PageLRU(page)) {
+ if (ret == 1 && !PageLRU(page)) {
/* Drop page reference which is from __get_any_page() */
put_hwpoison_page(page);
pr_info("soft_offline: %#lx: unknown non LRU page type %lx\n",
