Subject: mm/gup: don't pin migrated cma pages in movable zone

Patch series "prohibit pinning pages in ZONE_MOVABLE", v11.

When page is pinned it cannot be moved and its physical address stays
the same until pages is unpinned.

This is useful functionality to allows userland to implementation DMA
access. For example, it is used by vfio in vfio_pin_pages().

However, this functionality breaks memory hotplug/hotremove assumptions
that pages in ZONE_MOVABLE can always be migrated.

This patch series fixes this issue by forcing new allocations during
page pinning to omit ZONE_MOVABLE, and also to migrate any existing
pages from ZONE_MOVABLE during pinning.

It uses the same scheme logic that is currently used by CMA, and extends
the functionality for all allocations.

For more information read the discussion [1] about this problem.

This patch (of 14):

In order not to fragment CMA the pinned pages are migrated.  However, they
are migrated to ZONE_MOVABLE, which also should not have pinned pages.

Remove __GFP_MOVABLE, so pages can be migrated to zones where pinning is
