Subject[PATCH 4/4] alloc_contig_pages() use better allocation function for migration

From: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com>

Old story.
Because we cannot assume which memory section will be offlined next,
hotremove_migrate_alloc() just uses alloc_page(). i.e. make no decision
where the page should be migrate into. Considering memory hotplug's
nature, the next memory section near to a section which is being removed
will be removed in the next. So, migrate pages to the same node of original
page doesn't make sense in many case, it just increases load.
Migration destination page is allocated from the node where offlining script
runs.

Now, contiguous-alloc uses do_migrate_range(). In this case, migration
destination node should be the same node of migration source page.

This patch modifies hotremove_migrate_alloc() and pass "nid" to it.
Memory hotremove will pass -1. So, if the page will be moved to
the node where offlining script runs....no behavior changes.
