Sorry for missing this one you guys were discussing.
I don't understand the patch's goal although I read later patches.

isolate_movable_pages returns success/fail so that's why I selected
bool rather than int but it seems you guys want to propagate more
detailed error to the user so added -EBUSY and -EINVAL.

But the question is why isolate_lru_pages doesn't have -EINVAL?
Secondly, madvise man page should update?
Thirdly, if a driver fail isolation due to -ENOMEM, it should be
propagated, too?

if we want to propagte detailed error to user, driver's isolate_page
function should return right error.

I don't feel this all changes should be done now. What's the problem
if we change isolate_lru_page from int to bool? it returns just binary
value so it should be right place to use bool. If it fails, error val
is just -EBUSY.
