When pages are longterm pinned, we must migrated them out of movable zone.
The function that migrates them has a hidden loop with goto. The loop is
to retry on isolation failures, and after successful migration.

Make this code better by moving this loop to the caller.

This looks OK, it is better

Reviewed-by: Jason Gunthorpe <jgg@nvidia.com>

I really dislike we always have to go over the page list twice in pin
mode

The is_pinnable_page() and LRU isolation should really be done inside
__get_user_pages_locked() as each page is added to the output list

But that is more of a larger issue than this series

I agree, I also dislike that we have to loop twice.

We could also think about adding some optimization flags, i.e. clients
could tell gup that the pinned memory content can be discarded
FOLL_DISCARD. That way we could always allocate new pages in the right
zones as we do with this series and free existing translations. No
migration check would be necessary with such a flag.
