HWPoison: add memory_failure_queue()
memory_failure() is the entry point for HWPoison memory error recovery. It must be called in process context. But commonly hardware memory errors are notified via MCE or NMI, so some delayed execution mechanism must be used. In MCE handler, a work queue + ring buffer mechanism is used. In addition to MCE, now APEI (ACPI Platform Error Interface) GHES (Generic Hardware Error Source) can be used to report memory errors too. To add support to APEI GHES memory recovery, a mechanism similar to that of MCE is implemented. memory_failure_queue() is the new entry point that can be called in IRQ context. The next step is to make MCE handler uses this interface too.
