Other than just a few minor comments below, the idea behind the code
looks good to me.

You're doing bit operations on enum type and except enum type to have
values which are not defined within the enum type (ie. MIGRATE_SYNC |
MIGRATE_DISCARD does not map to any enum value). I feel that the
variable should be changed to be “unsigned” (maybe with __bitwise)
rather than “enum migrate_mode”.

Please use parens around bit operations. :)

Please use braces around this statement.

Useless empty line.
