Enforced, no. But if the pageblocks really were as such, it used to
shortcut has_unmovable_pages(). This was wrong and removed in
d7b236e10ced ("mm: drop migrate type checks from has_unmovable_pages")
plus 4da2ce250f98 ("mm: distinguish CMA and MOVABLE isolation in
has_unmovable_pages()").

Strictly speaking this is true only for the CMA case. For other cases,
the best thing actually would be to employ the same heuristics as page
allocation migratetype fallbacks, and count how many pages are free and
how many appear to be movable, see how steal_suitable_fallback() uses
the last parameter of move_freepages_block().

This is missing some high-level result. The end change is that CMA is
now enforcing. So we are making it more robust when it's called on
non-CMA pageblocks by mistake? (BTW I still do hope we can remove
MIGRATE_CMA soon after Joonsoo's ZONE_MOVABLE CMA conversion. Combined
with my suggestion above we could hopefully get rid of the migratetype
parameter completely instead of enforcing it?). Is this also a
preparation for introducing find_alloc_contig_pages() which will be
enforcing? (I guess, and will find out shortly, but it should be stated
here)

Thanks,
Vlastimil
