There is a race window between page freeing (after successful soft-offline
-> page migration case) and the containment by set_hwpoison_free_buddy_page().
Or a target page can be allocated just after get_any_page() decided that
the target page is a free page.
So set_hwpoison_free_buddy_page() would safely fail in such cases.

Thanks,
