Subject[PATCH -next] mm/compaction: no stuck in __reset_isolation_pfn()
Date
The commit c68d77911c23 ("mm, compaction: be selective about what
pageblocks to clear skip hints") introduced an infinite loop if a pfn is
invalid, it will loop again without increasing page counters. It can be
reproduced by running LTP tests on an arm64 server.

Congratulation, likely test hit a kernel bug.

Also, triggers soft lockups.
