No, actually, it will fall back to slow path, which migrates and sever
the LONGTERM pin.

This patch just aims to fix the leakage in gup fast path, while in gup
slow path, there is already logic to guard CMA against LONGTERM pin.

In fact, it does this. The failure in gup fast path will fall back to
slow path, where __gup_longterm_locked->check_and_migrate_cma_pages()
does the migration.
