Global reclaim aims to reduce the amount of memory used on
a given node or set of nodes.  Migrating pages to another
node serves this purpose.

memcg reclaim is different.  Its goal is to reduce the
total memory consumption of the entire memcg, across all
nodes.  Migration does not assist memcg reclaim because
it just moves page contents between nodes rather than
actually reducing memory consumption.
