Sorry for inconvenience, I submitted a possible fix hours ago,
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-mm/20220923081827.GA1357512@ik1-406-35019.vs.sakura.ne.jp/T/#t
I think the above build error should be fixed by this.

(the updated patch is here https://lore.kernel.org/linux-mm/20220923082613.GB1357512@ik1-406-35019.vs.sakura.ne.jp/T/#u)

But ...

Yes, the new field ->nr_hwpoison is meaningful only when both settings are
enabled, so I need/will update #ifdef condition to check MEMORY_HOTPLUG.
In x86, CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=n and CONFIG_MEMORY_FAILURE=y does not show
this error.  So this error might be caused by arch dependency.
Anyway I'll update the patch again soon.
Thank you for the report.
