This reuses the existing page allocation helper from migrate_pages() system
call. But all these allocator helper names for migrate_pages() function are
really confusing. Even in this case alloc_new_node_page and the original
new_node_page() which is still getting used in do_migrate_range() sounds
similar even if their implementation is quite different. IMHO either all of
them should be moved to the header file with proper differentiating names
or let them be there in their respective files with these generic names and
clean them up later.

Just a nit. new_page_node() and store_status() seems different. Then why
the git diff looks so clumsy.

Even this one. IIUC, do_move_pages_to_node() migrate a chunk of pages
at a time which belong to the same target node. Perhaps the name should
suggest so. All these helper page migration helper functions sound so
similar.

Holding mmap_sem for individual pages makes sense. Current
implementation is holding it for an entire batch.

While here, should not we add 'addr > vma->vm_end' into this condition ?

err init might not be required, its getting assigned to -EFAULT right away.

This block of code is bit confusing.

1) Why attempt to migrate when just one page could not be isolated ?
2) 'i' is always greater than chunk_start except the starting page
3) Why reset chunk_node as NUMA_NO_NODE ?
