Subject[PATCH 3.16 111/233] mm/migrate: fix refcount handling when !hugepage_migration_supported()
3.16.48-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Punit Agrawal <punit.agrawal@arm.com>

commit 30809f559a0d348c2dfd7ab05e9a451e2384962e upstream.

On failing to migrate a page, soft_offline_huge_page() performs the
necessary update to the hugepage ref-count.

But when !hugepage_migration_supported() , unmap_and_move_hugepage()
also decrements the page ref-count for the hugepage. The combined
behaviour leaves the ref-count in an inconsistent state.

This leads to soft lockups when running the overcommitted hugepage test
from mce-tests suite.

Soft offlining pfn 0x83ed600 at process virtual address 0x400000000000
soft offline: 0x83ed600: migration failed 1, type 1fffc00000008008 (uptodate|head)

Address this by changing the putback_active_hugepage() in
soft_offline_huge_page() to putback_movable_pages().

This only triggers on systems that enable memory failure handling
(ARCH_SUPPORTS_MEMORY_FAILURE) but not hugepage migration
(!ARCH_ENABLE_HUGEPAGE_MIGRATION).

I imagine this wasn't triggered as there aren't many systems running
this configuration.
