[PATCH v2 4/5] mm/hwpoison: fix refcount of THP head page in no-injection case

From: Wanpeng Li
Date: Mon Aug 10 2015 - 07:56:30 EST

Hwpoison injection takes a refcount of target page and another refcount
of head page of THP if the target page is the tail page of a THP. However,
current code doesn't release the refcount of head page if the THP is not
supported to be injected wrt hwpoison filter.

Fix it by reducing the refcount of head page if the target page is the tail
page of a THP and it is not supported to be injected.
