I agree.

I checked git history and found some related to this race.
IIRC, the race windows seems to open at commit c6c919eb90e0 ("mm: use put_page()
to free page instead of putback_lru_page()") which makes migration source pages
freed by put_page().
Before that commit, we kept migration source pages pinned to avoid reusing,
introduced by commit add05cecef80 ("mm: soft-offline: don't free target page
in successful page migration".)
And before this commit, migration source pages were freed via putback_lru_page()
with changing migration type to MIGRATE_ISOLATE.

The oldest behavior was buggy because of freeing with putback_lru_page(),
but "changing migration type" part was still correct if there's a time window
between freeing a page and setting the PageHWPoison flag.
At c6c919eb90e0 we returned back to the behavior of releasing source pages
(then we have such time window again,) so we should have restored to change
the migration type.
So I feel that this solves the above issues in the normal page's case.
Does it make sense?

This part of code has changed repeatedly and it's painful to track the whole
story in git-log, so I'll clarify the latest (hopefully saner) behavior
in inline comment.

We get OOM if alloc_huge_page() returns ENOMEM, and that happens when
 - vma_needs_reservation() returns negative value,
 - hugetlb_cgroup_charge_cgroup() fails to charge.
It seems to me that hwposion doesn't affect both of these.

I presumed that dequeue_huge_page_vma() failed with NULL return due to
dequeue_huge_page_node_exact()'s failure.
And the result should be ENOSPC or allocation success by overcommitting.
So the allocation failure might cause sigbus?

Yes, so as-is might be fine.
