Hi Anshuman,

Sorry for the late question, but I just stumbled on this code when
looking at something else.

It appears the primary motivation for these changes is to handle
memory errors in gigantic pages. In this case, you migrate to
another gigantic page. However, doesn't this assume that there is
a pre-allocated gigantic page sitting unused that will be the target
of the migration? alloc_huge_page_node will not allocate a gigantic
page. Or, am I missing something?
