Subject: [PATCH v2 4/5] mm: Fix page reference leak in soft_offline_page()

The conversion to move pfn_to_online_page() internal to
soft_offline_page() missed that the get_user_pages() reference needs to
be dropped when pfn_to_online_page() fails.

When soft_offline_page() is handed a pfn_valid() &&
!pfn_to_online_page() pfn the kernel hangs at dax-device shutdown due to
a leaked reference.

Fixes: feec24a6139d ("mm, soft-offline: convert parameter to pfn")
