Subject[v5 PATCH 1/6] mm: hwpoison: remove the unnecessary THP check
When handling THP hwpoison checked if the THP is in allocation or free
stage since hwpoison may mistreat it as hugetlb page. After
commit 415c64c1453a ("mm/memory-failure: split thp earlier in memory error
handling") the problem has been fixed, so this check is no longer
needed. Remove it. The side effect of the removal is hwpoison may
report unsplit THP instead of unknown error for shmem THP. It seems not
like a big deal.

The following patch depends on this, which fixes shmem THP with
hwpoisoned subpage(s) are mapped PMD wrongly. So this patch needs to be
backported to -stable as well.
