Subject[PATCH 8/8] Direct Migration V2: SWAP_REFERENCE for try_to_unmap()
Distinguish in try_to_umap_one between the case when the page is truly
unswappable from the case when the page was recently referenced.

The page migration code uses try_to_unmap_one and can avoid calling
try_to_unmap again if there was a persistent failure.
