Subject[PATCH v5 4/4] mm,hwpoison: drop unneeded pcplist draining
Date
memory_failure and soft_offline_path paths now drain pcplists by calling
get_hwpoison_page.

memory_failure flags the page as HWPoison before, so that page cannot
longer go into a pcplist, and soft_offline_page only flags a page as
HWPoison if 1) we took the page off a buddy freelist 2) the page was
in-use and we migrated it 3) was a clean pagecache.

Because of that, a page cannot longer be poisoned and be in a pcplist.
