By reading the code, it seems get_any_page() is called to shake the
page for both soft offline and memory_failure(), so it seems like a
good place to call dump_page() if -EIO is going to be returned, which
hwpoison can't handle the page, otherwise we may need call dump_page()
in a couple of different places.

Although dump_page() will be called with pcp disabled and holding
memory hotplug lock if it is called by get_any_page(), but I'm
supposed it should be not a big deal.
