When unmap_and_move{_huge_page}() returns !-EAGAIN and !MIGRATEPAGE_SUCCESS,
the page would be put back to LRU or proper list if it is non-LRU movable
page.  But, the callers always call putback_movable_pages() to put the
failed pages back later on, so it seems not very efficient to put every
single page back immediately, and the code looks convoluted.

Put the failed page on a separate list, then splice the list to migrate
list when all pages are tried.  It is the caller's responsibility to
call putback_movable_pages() to handle failures.  This also makes the
code simpler and more readable.

After the change the rules are:
    * Success: non hugetlb page will be freed, hugetlb page will be put
               back
    * -EAGAIN: stay on the from list
    * -ENOMEM: stay on the from list
    * Other errno: put on ret_pages list then splice to from list

The from list would be empty iff all pages are migrated successfully, it
was not so before.  This has no impact to current existing callsites.
