[PATCH] mm, hugetlb, soft_offline: save compound page order before page migration




This fixes a bug in madvise() where if you'd try to soft offline a
hugepage via madvise(), while walking the address range you'd end up,
using the wrong page offset due to attempting to get the compound
order of a former but presently not compound page, due to dissolving
the huge page (since c3114a8).
