Subject[PATCH 5.5 057/367] mm/migrate.c: also overwrite error when it is bigger than zero
Date
From: Wei Yang <richardw.yang@linux.intel.com>

commit dfe9aa23cab7880a794db9eb2d176c00ed064eb6 upstream.

If we get here after successfully adding page to list, err would be 1 to
indicate the page is queued in the list.

Current code has two problems:

* on success, 0 is not returned
* on error, if add_page_for_migratioin() return 1, and the following err1
from do_move_pages_to_node() is set, the err1 is not returned since err
is 1

And these behaviors break the user interface.

Fixes: e0153fc2c760 ("mm: move_pages: return valid node id in status if the page is already on the target node").
