This has another effect except fixing the failure counting. That is,
the split subpages of THP will not be retried for 10 times for -EAGAIN.
TBH, I think that we should do that. But because this has some behavior
change, it's better to be done in a separate patch? Do you have
interest to do that on top of this patchset?

Thanks!
