Subject[PATCH] move_pages.2: remove ENOENT from the list of possible return values
Date
Linux kernel commit e78bbfa82624 ("mm: stop returning -ENOENT from
sys_move_pages() if nothing got migrated") had the effect of *never*
returning -ENOENT, in any situation. So we need to update the man page
to reflect that ENOENT is not a possible return value.
