Subject: [PATCH v2 1/7] mm/hwpoison: fix lose PG_dirty flag for errors on mlocked pages

memory_failure() store the page flag of the error page before doing unmap,
and (only) if the first check with page flags at the time decided the error
page is unknown, it do the second check with the stored page flag since
memory_failure() does unmapping of the error pages before doing page_action().
This unmapping changes the page state, especially page_remove_rmap() (called
from try_to_unmap_one()) clears PG_mlocked, so page_action() can't catch
mlocked pages after that.

However, memory_failure() can't handle memory errors on dirty mlocked pages
correctly. try_to_unmap_one will move the dirty bit from pte to the physical
page, the second check lose it since it check the stored page flag. This patch
fix it by restore PG_dirty flag to stored page flag if the page is dirty.

Testcase:

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <errno.h>

#define PAGES_TO_TEST 2
#define PAGE_SIZE	4096

int main(void)
{
	char *mem;
	int i;

	mem = mmap(NULL, PAGES_TO_TEST * PAGE_SIZE,
			PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS | MAP_LOCKED, 0, 0);

	for (i = 0; i < PAGES_TO_TEST; i++)
		mem[i * PAGE_SIZE] = 'a';

	if (madvise(mem, PAGES_TO_TEST * PAGE_SIZE, MADV_HWPOISON) == -1)
		return -1;

	return 0;
}
