mm: mempolicy: Check for misplaced page
This patch provides a new function to test whether a page resides on a node that is appropriate for the mempolicy for the vma and address where the page is supposed to be mapped. This involves looking up the node where the page belongs. So, the function returns that node so that it may be used to allocated the page without consulting the policy again. A subsequent patch will call this function from the fault path. Because of this, I don't want to go ahead and allocate the page, e.g., via alloc_page_vma() only to have to free it if it has the correct policy. So, I just mimic the alloc_page_vma() node computation logic--sort of. Note: we could use this function to implement a MPOL_MF_STRICT behavior when migrating pages to match mbind() mempolicy--e.g., to ensure that pages in an interleaved range are reinterleaved rather than left where they are when they reside on any page in the interleave nodemask.
