Subject[PATCH v2 1/3] mm/memory-failure.c: fix race with changing page compound again
Date
There is a race window where we got the compound_head, the hugetlb page
could be freed to buddy, or even changed to another compound page just
before we try to get hwpoison page. Think about the below race window:
CPU 1 CPU 2
memory_failure_hugetlb
struct page *head = compound_head(p);
hugetlb page might be freed to
buddy, or even changed to another
compound page.

get_hwpoison_page -- page is not what we want now...

If this race happens, just bail out. Also MF_MSG_DIFFERENT_PAGE_SIZE is
introduced to record this event.
