This patch has go-ahead from Mel and Rik and no outstanding comments.

In my analysis, I did find a lot of cases where the same cpu ended up
being the target. + I am not sure you can apply "sched/numa: Restrict
migrating in parallel to the same node" cleanly without this patch.

So I am a bit confused. If possible, please clarify.

Will try with spin_trylock and get back.

I didnt see any comments for this apart from an ack from Rik.
+ It thought it was trivial and shouldnt have any side-effect.
