Ok, I was too eager here.

If CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE_FREE_VMEMMAP is not set for whatever reason
(e.g: CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE is disabled), when you convert "+4"
to its index (SUBPAGE_INDEX_HWPOISON), this will no longer build
since we only define SUBPAGE_INDEX_HWPOISON when the config
option CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE_FREE_VMEMMAP is set.

Different things can be done to fix this:

e.g:

 - Define a two different hwpoison_subpage_{deliver,set}
   and have them under
   #ifdef CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE_FREE_VMEMMAP
   ...
   #else
   ...
   #endif

 - Work it around as is with IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_HUGETLB_...
 - Have a common entry and decide depending on whether
   the config is enabled.

I guess option #1 might be cleaner.
