From: Jane Chu <jane.chu@oracle.com>
Subject: mm/memory-failure.c clean up around tk pre-allocation

add_to_kill() expects the first 'tk' to be pre-allocated, it makes
subsequent allocations on need basis, this makes the code a bit difficult
to read.  Move all the allocation internal to add_to_kill() and drop the
**tk argument.
