Yes, that's not implemented yet, but can be helpful.

I think that there are 2 types of callers of page migration,
one is a caller that specifies the target pages individually (like move_pages
and soft offline), and another is a caller that specifies the target pages
by (physical/virtual) address range basis.
Maybe the former ones want to fall back immediately to split and retry if
thp migration fails, and the latter ones want to retry thp migration more.
If this makes sense, we can make some more changes on retry logic to fit
the situation.

Thanks,
