This patch fixes the following oops, which could be trigged by build the kernel
with many concurrent threads, under CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC.

hpte_insert() might return -1, indicating that the bucket (primary here)
is full. We are not necessarily reporting a BUG in this case. Instead, we could
try repeatedly (try secondary, remove and try again) until we find a slot.
