Sorry, I modified the patches based on the different assumption from yours.
I firstly thought of taking page off after confirming the error page
is freed back to buddy. This approach leaves the possibility of reusing
the error page (which is acceptable), but simpler and less invasive one.

Your approach removes the error page from page allocator's control in
freeing time. It has no possibility of reusing the error page but changes
are tightly coupled with page free code.

This is a tradeoff between complexity and completeness of soft offline,
Now I'm not sure I could persist on my own opinion without providing
working code, and it's OK for me to take your one.

This order was correct in my approach. Isolation operation is done
after confirming it's in the free list. This prevents PageHWPoison pages
from being in pcpclists. But the page_ref_inc() may not be necessary in my approach.

The test passed in my environment, so this is fine.

Yes, proposing the fix for mmhwpoison-rework-soft-offline-for-in-use-pages.patch
seems fine to me.

Again, sorry for modifying code without asking.
