Something like this:

diff --git a/include/linux/page-flags.h b/include/linux/page-flags.h
index e66f7aa3191d..baffa9c0dc30 100644
--- a/include/linux/page-flags.h
+++ b/include/linux/page-flags.h
@@ -186,6 +186,7 @@ enum pageflags {
* THP.
*/
PG_has_hwpoisoned = PG_error,
+ PG_offlimits = PG_hwpoison,
#endif

/* non-lru isolated movable page */
and SNP will have to depend on CONFIG_MEMORY_FAILURE.

But I'd let mm folks correct me here on the details.
