Subject[PATCH v1 3/7] mm: rename and move page_is_poisoned()
Date
Commit d3378e86d182 ("mm/gup: check page posion status for coredump.")
introduced page_is_poisoned(), however, v5 [1] of the patch used
"page_is_hwpoison()" and something went wrong while upstreaming. Rename the
function and move it to page-flags.h, from where it can be used in other
-- kcore -- context.

Move the comment to the place where it belongs and simplify.
