SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] ia64: Call migration code on correctable errors v3

The page migration functions expect to be called in non atomic contexts
since they use things like lock_page(). Can you just drop the irq disable?
The spinlock should not be there either. Page migration serialize via
the LRU. Pages that are to be migrated have to be taken off the LRU
first. There is no danger of two threads trying to migrate the same
page because the second one will not be able to take it off the LRU
anymore.
