Subject[PATCH 6/8] Direct Migration V2: Avoid writeback / page_migrate() method
Migrate a page with buffers without requiring writeback

This introduces a new address space operation migrate_page() that
may be used by a filesystem to implement its own version of page migration.

A version is provided that migrates buffers attached to pages. Some
filesystems (ext2, ext3, xfs) are modified to utilize this feature.

The swapper address space operation are modified so that a regular
migrate_pages() will occur for anonymous pages without writeback
(migrate_pages forces every anonymous page to have a swap entry).

V1->V2:
- Fix CONFIG_MIGRATION handling
