thp: fix splitting of hwpoisoned hugepages
The poisoned THP is now split with split_huge_page() in collect_procs_anon(). If kmalloc() is failed in collect_procs(), split_huge_page() could not be called. And the work after split_huge_page() for collecting the processes using poisoned page will not be done, too. So the processes using the poisoned page could not be killed. The condition becomes worse when CONFIG_DEBUG_VM == "Y". Because the poisoned THP could not be split, system panic will be caused by VM_BUG_ON(PageTransHuge(page)) in try_to_unmap(). This patch does: 1. move split_huge_page() to the place before collect_procs(). This can be sure the failure of splitting THP is caused by itself. 2. when splitting THP is failed, stop the operations after it. This can avoid unexpected system panic or non sense works.
