No we have
out_flush:
/* Make sure we do not overwrite the existing error */
err1 = do_move_pages_to_node(mm, &pagelist, current_node);
if (!err1)
err1 = store_status(status, start, current_node, i - start);
if (!err)
err = err1;

This is obviously not an act of beauty and probably a subject to a
cleanup but I just wanted this thing to be working first. Further
cleanups can go on top.

Thanks. I have been testing this specific code path with the following
simple test program and numactl -m0. The code is rather crude so I've
always modified it manually to test different scenarios (this one keeps
every 1k page on the node node to test batching.
