So that migration stuff has a filter on, we need two consecutive numa
faults from the same page_cpupid 'hash', see

And since this appears to be anonymous memory (no THP) this is all a
single address space. However, we don't appear to invalidate TLBs when
we upgrade the PTE protection bits (not strictly required of course), so
we can have multiple CPUs trip over the same 'old' NUMA PTE.

Still, generating such a migration storm would be fairly tricky I think.
