[PATCH 153/241] mm: soft offline: split thp at the beginning of soft_offline_page()

Thu Dec 13 13:58:38 UTC 2012 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi at ah.jp.nec.com>

commit 783657a7dc20e5c0efbc9a09a9dd38e238a723da upstream.

When we try to soft-offline a thp tail page, put_page() is called on the
tail page unthinkingly and VM_BUG_ON is triggered in put_compound_page().

This patch splits thp before going into the main body of soft-offlining.
