When migrating an anonymous private page to a ZONE_DEVICE private page,
the source page->mapping and page->index fields are copied to the
destination ZONE_DEVICE struct page and the page_mapcount() is increased.
This is so rmap_walk() can be used to unmap and migrate the page back to
system memory. However, try_to_unmap_one() computes the subpage pointer
from a swap pte which computes an invalid page pointer and a kernel panic
results such as:

BUG: unable to handle page fault for address: ffffea1fffffffc8

Currently, only single pages can be migrated to device private memory so
no subpage computation is needed and it can be set to "page".
