If thp migration works fine for shmem, we can keep anon/shmem thp to
be migratable and we don't need any ad-hoc workaround.
So I wrote a patch to enable it.
This patch does not change any shmem specific code, so I think that
it works for file thp (not only shmem,) but I don't test it yet.

Thanks,
Naoya Horiguchi

Subject: [PATCH] mm: enable thp migration for shmem thp

My testing for the latest kernel supporting thp migration showed an
infinite loop in offlining the memory block that is filled with shmem
thps. We can get out of the loop with a signal, but kernel should
return with failure in this case.

What happens in the loop is that scan_movable_pages() repeats returning
the same pfn without any progress. That's because page migration always
fails for shmem thps.

In memory offline code, memory blocks containing unmovable pages should
be prevented from being offline targets by has_unmovable_pages() inside
start_isolate_page_range(). So it's possible to change migratability
for non-anonymous thps to avoid the issue, but it introduces more complex
and thp-specific handling in migration code, so it might not good.

So this patch is suggesting to fix the issue by enabling thp migration
for shmem thp. Both of anon/shmem thp are migratable so we don't need
precheck about the type of thps.
