Over committed source pages will be released into buddy and the normal ones
will not be ? dissolve_free_huge_page() returns -EBUSY because PageHuge()
return negative on already released pages ? How dissolve_free_huge_page()
will behave differently with over committed pages. I might be missing some
recent developments here.

Hmm. It gives up early as the return value from dissolve_free_huge_page(EBUSY)
gets back as the return code for soft_offline_huge_page() without attempting
set_hwpoison_free_buddy_page() which still has a chance to succeed for freed
normal buddy pages.

Right. It should return 0 (as a success) for freed normal buddy pages. Should
not it then check explicitly for PageBuddy() as well ?

With this early bail out it maintains the functionality when called from
soft_offline_free_page() for normal pages. For huge page, it continues
on the previous path.

Right. These checks are now redundant.
