Subject[PATCH -v2 3/3] Fix unsuitable behavior for poisoned tail pages of THP.
When a tail page of THP is poisoned, memory-failure will do
nothing except setting PG_hwpoison, while the expected behavior is
that the process, who is using the poisoned tail page, should be
killed.

The above problem is caused by lru check of the poisoned tail page
of THP. Because PG_lru flag is only set on the head page of
THP, the check always consider the poisoned tail page as NON
lru page.

So the lru check for the tail page of THP should be avoided,
as like as hugetlb.

This patch adds !PageTransCompound() before lru check for THP,
because of the check (!PageHuge() && !PageTransCompound())
the whole branch could be optimized away at build time when both
hugetlbfs and THP are set with "N" (or in archs not supporting
either of those).

-v2
Use PageTransCompound() that could be optimized away.
