Subject[PATCH] mm/madvise: Dont poison entire HugeTLB page for single page errors
Date
Currently soft_offline_page() migrates the entire HugeTLB page, then
dequeues it from the active list by making it a dangling HugeTLB page
which ofcourse can not be used further and marks the entire HugeTLB
page as poisoned. This might be a costly waste of memory if the error
involved affects only small section of the entire page.

This changes the behaviour so that only the affected page is marked
poisoned and then the HugeTLB page is released back to buddy system.

Signed-off-by: Anshuman Khandual <khandual@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
---
The number of poisoned pages on the system has reduced as seen from
dmesg triggered with 'echo m > /proc/sysrq-enter' on powerpc.
