Ugh, I'm surprised that it's not the case already. Maybe the allocation
from same node is already prevented indirectly somehow?

IMHO CMA should prefer the same node as the migrated page, if anything.
Current task's mempolicy shouldn't restrict it (it's likely migrating
pages of somebody else) or even guide its preferences. Ideally it would
keep the original page's mempolicy, but we can't afford to track that...

So, is this patch improooooving it enough that we can delete the
comment? If not, could the patch be improooooved? :)
