[PATCH 3.8 75/91] mm: numa: cleanup flow of transhuge page migration

3.8.13.13 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Hugh Dickins <hughd at google.com>

commit 340ef3902cf20cec43cdcd1e72ae5cb518be7328 upstream.

When correcting commit 04fa5d6a6547 ("mm: migrate: check page_count of
THP before migrating") Hugh Dickins noted that the control flow for
transhuge migration was difficult to follow.  Unconditionally calling
put_page() in numamigrate_isolate_page() made the failure paths of both
migrate_misplaced_transhuge_page() and migrate_misplaced_page() more
complex that they should be.  Further, he was extremely wary that an
unlock_page() should ever happen after a put_page() even if the
put_page() should never be the final put_page.

Hugh implemented the following cleanup to simplify the path by calling
putback_lru_page() inside numamigrate_isolate_page() if it failed to
isolate and always calling unlock_page() within
migrate_misplaced_transhuge_page().

There is no functional change after this patch is applied but the code
is easier to follow and unlock_page() always happens before put_page().
