Well, this is very timing depending.
AFAICS, before the rework patchset, we could still race with an allocation
as the page could have been allocated between the get_any_page()
and the call to set_hwpoison_free_buddy_page() which takes the zone->lock
to prevent that.

Maybe we just happen to take longer now to reach take_page_off_buddy, so the
race window is bigger.

AFAICS, this has nothing to do with MIGRATE_ISOLATE, because here we are
dealing with pages that already free (part of the buddy system).

The only thing that comes to my mind right off the bat, might be to do
a "retry" in soft_offline_page in case soft_offline_free_page returns -EBUSY,
so we can call again get_any_page and try to handle the new type of page.
Something like (untested):
