Subject[RFC][PATCH 05/26] mm, mpol: Check for misplaced page
From: Lee Schermerhorn <Lee.Schermerhorn@hp.com>

This patch provides a new function to test whether a page resides
on a node that is appropriate for the mempolicy for the vma and
address where the page is supposed to be mapped. This involves
looking up the node where the page belongs. So, the function
returns that node so that it may be used to allocated the page
without consulting the policy again. Because interleaved and
non-interleaved allocations are accounted differently, the function
also returns whether or not the new node came from an interleaved
policy, if the page is misplaced.

A subsequent patch will call this function from the fault path for
stable pages with zero page_mapcount(). Because of this, I don't
want to go ahead and allocate the page, e.g., via alloc_page_vma()
only to have to free it if it has the correct policy. So, I just
mimic the alloc_page_vma() node computation logic--sort of.

Note: we could use this function to implement a MPOL_MF_STRICT
behavior when migrating pages to match mbind() mempolicy--e.g.,
to ensure that pages in an interleaved range are reinterleaved
rather than left where they are when they reside on any page in
the interleave nodemask.

[ Added MPOL_F_LAZY to trigger migrate-on-fault;
simplified code now that we don't have to bother
with special crap for interleaved ]
