thp: allow a hwpoisoned head page to be put back to LRU
Andrea Arcangeli pointed out to me that a check in __memory_failure() which was intended to prevent THP tail pages from being checked for the absence of the PG_lru flag (something that is always the case), was also preventing THP head pages from being checked. A THP head page could actually benefit from the call to shake_page() by ending up being put back to a LRU, provided it had been waiting in a pagevec array. Andrea suggested that the "!PageTransCompound(p)" in the if-statement should be replaced by a "!PageTransTail(p)", thus allowing THP head pages to be checked and possibly shaken.
