That implies that other memory ranges that are currently isolated
(memory offlining, alloc_contig_range()) cannot be pinned. That might
not be a bad thing, however, I think we could end up failing to pin
something that's temporarily unmovable (due to temporary references).

However, I assume we have the same issue right now already with
ZONE_MOVABLE and MIGRATE_CMA when trying to pin a page residing on these
there are temporarily unmovable and we fail to migrate. But it would now
apply even without ZONE_MOVABLE or MIGRATE_CMA. Hm...
