ksm: enable KSM page migration
Migration of KSM pages is now safe: remove the PageKsm restrictions from mempolicy.c and migrate.c. But keep PageKsm out of __unmap_and_move()'s anon_vma contortions, which are irrelevant to KSM: it looks as if that code was preventing hotremove migration of KSM pages, unless they happened to be in swapcache. There is some question as to whether enforcing a NUMA mempolicy migration ought to migrate KSM pages, mapped into entirely unrelated processes; but moving page_mapcount > 1 is only permitted with MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL anyway, and it seems reasonable to assume that you wouldn't set MADV_MERGEABLE on any area where this is a worry.
