[PATCH 3.18 113/144] mm: migrate: hugetlb: putback destination hugepage to active list




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 3aaa76e125c1dd58c9b599baa8c6021896874c12 ]

Since commit bcc54222309c ("mm: hugetlb: introduce page_huge_active")
each hugetlb page maintains its active flag to avoid a race condition
betwe= en multiple calls of isolate_huge_page(), but current kernel
doesn't set the f= lag on a hugepage allocated by migration because the
proper putback routine isn= 't called.  This means that users could
still encounter the race referred to by bcc54222309c in this special
case, so this patch fixes it.
