I don't know the reason of current behavior, but

from/to which node kernel should migrate pages in general ?

Should kernel remember previous value of "mems" ? What if we change "mems"
several times before setting memory_migrate ON ?

IMHO, current behavior is not so strange. All users have to do is
set memory_migrate ON *before* changing "mems" or attaching task
if they want to migrate pages.
