Changelog
v4: * Fixed the comments from Vlastimil.
    * Collected Vlastimil's Reviewed-by.
v3: * Adopted the suggestions from Vlastimil.  Saved another 20 lines.
      Using flag in struct queue_pages looks not outperform renumbering retval
      too much since we still have to return 1 to tell the caller there are
      unmovable pages.  So just renumber the retval.
    * Manpage is not very clear about shared pages when MPOL_MF_MOVE is
      specified, just leave it as it is for now till it gets clarified.
v2: * Fixed the inconsistent behavior by not aborting !vma_migratable()
      immediately by a separate patch (patch 1/2), and this is also the
      preparation for patch 2/2. For the details please see the commit
      log.  Per Vlastimil.
    * Not abort immediately if unmovable page is met. This should handle
      non-LRU movable pages and temporary off-LRU pages more friendly.
      Per Vlastimil and Michal Hocko.
