Subject[PATCH v7 13/14] mm,hwpoison: double-check page count in __get_any_page()
Date
From: Naoya Horiguchi <naoya.horiguchi@nec.com>

Soft offlining could fail with EIO due to the race condition with hugepage
migration. This issuse became visible due to the change by previous patch
that makes soft offline handler take page refcount by its own. We have no
way to directly pin zero refcount page, and the page considered as a zero
refcount page could be allocated just after the first check.

This patch adds the second check to find the race and gives us chance to
handle it more reliably.
