No, I don't think so.

If this is an important problem then it should apply equally to CPU
and IO jitter.

Honestly I find the idea that occasional migration jitters CPU and DMA
to not be very compelling. Such specialized applications should
allocate special pages to avoid this, not adding an API to be able to
lock down any page
