Subject[PATCH] [10/16] HWPOISON: Handle hardware poisoned pages in try_to_unmap
Date

When a page has the poison bit set replace the PTE with a poison entry.
This causes the right error handling to be done later when a process runs
into it.

Also add a new flag to not do that (needed for the memory-failure handler
later)
