[PATCH v3 7/9] memory-hotplug: auto offline page_cgroup when onlining memory block failed

From: wency

From: Wen Congyang <wency@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

When a memory block is onlined, we will try allocate memory on that node
to store page_cgroup. If onlining the memory block failed, we don't
offline the page cgroup, and we have no chance to offline this page cgroup
unless the memory block is onlined successfully again. It will cause
that we can't hot-remove the memory device on that node, because some
memory is used to store page cgroup. If onlining the memory block
is failed, there is no need to stort page cgroup for this memory. So
auto offline page_cgroup when onlining memory block failed.
