Hmmm... I thought I had this already set up so that it would be easy to
switch page migration to not depend on CONFIG_NUMA. Not so it seems.

I guess we get compilation failures because of the reference to
policy_zone here for the !NUMA case? I think vma migratable is not used at
all if !NUMA.

Maybe this block is not necessary?

Correct.

Do we really need the CONFIG_SYSCALL_MOVE_PAGES? I think you will directly
access the lower levels. So why have it? CONFIG_SYSCALL_MOVE_PAGES ==
CONFIG_NUMA.
