Sure. Here is the updated patch.

HWPOISON: add memory cgroup filter

The hwpoison test suite need to inject hwpoison to a collection of
selected task pages, and must not touch pages not owned by them and
thus kill important system processes such as init. (But it's OK to
mis-hwpoison free/unowned pages as well as shared clean pages.
Mis-hwpoison of shared dirty pages will kill all tasks, so the test
suite will target all or non of such tasks in the first place.)

The memory cgroup serves this purpose well. We can put the target
processes under the control of a memory cgroup, and tell the hwpoison
injection code to only kill pages associated with some active memory
cgroup.

The prerequisite for doing hwpoison stress tests with mem_cgroup is,
the mem_cgroup code tracks task pages _accurately_ (unless page is
locked). Which we believe is/should be true.

The benifits are simplification of hwpoison injector code. Also the
mem_cgroup code will automatically be tested by hwpoison test cases.

The alternative interfaces pin-pfn/unpin-pfn can also delegate the
(process and page flags) filtering functions reliably to user space.
However prototype implementation shows that this scheme adds more
complexity than we wanted.
