Currently hwpoison doesn't handle page cache THP, just give up and return
error.  It is just because the hwpoison THP support was added before
page cache THP was supported.

Handling page cache THP is simple, they could be offlined by splitting THP,
just like anonymous THP.

The question is how to distinguish them with allocating and freeing THP
which can't be handled by hwpoison properly.  It seems page->mapping is a
good indicator, both anonymous page and file page have it populated, but
it won't be populated until the page is added to rmap or page cache, in
other word, instantiated.  If page->mapping is populated it is
definitely not in allocating or freeing.

The later get_page_unless_zero() could serialize against page free
paths.
