[ Upstream commit c7b1850dfb41d0b4154aca8dbc04777fbd75616f ]

syzbot hit kernel BUG at fs/hugetlbfs/inode.c:532 as described in [1].
This BUG triggers if the HPageRestoreReserve flag is set on a page in
the page cache. It should never be set, as the routine
huge_add_to_page_cache explicitly clears the flag after adding a page to
the cache.

The only code other than huge page allocation which sets the flag is
restore_reserve_on_error. It will potentially set the flag in rare out
of memory conditions. syzbot was injecting errors to cause memory
allocation errors which exercised this specific path.

The code in restore_reserve_on_error is doing the right thing. However,
there are instances where pages in the page cache were being passed to
restore_reserve_on_error. This is incorrect, as once a page goes into
the cache reservation information will not be modified for the page
until it is removed from the cache. Error paths do not remove pages
from the cache, so even in the case of error, the page will remain in
the cache and no reservation adjustment is needed.

Modify routines that potentially call restore_reserve_on_error with a
page cache page to no longer do so.

Note on fixes tag: Prior to commit 846be08578ed ("mm/hugetlb: expand
restore_reserve_on_error functionality") the routine would not process
page cache pages because the HPageRestoreReserve flag is not set on such
pages. Therefore, this issue could not be trigggered. The code added
by commit 846be08578ed ("mm/hugetlb: expand restore_reserve_on_error
functionality") is needed and correct. It exposed incorrect calls to
restore_reserve_on_error which is the root cause addressed by this
