hwpoisoned may set when we offline a page by the sysfs interface
/sys/devices/system/memory/soft_offline_page or
/sys/devices/system/memory/hard_offline_page. If we don't clear
this flag when onlining pages, this page can't be freed, and will
not in free list. So we can't offline these pages again. So we
should clear this flag when onlining pages.
