Subject: [PATCH] mm/migrate.c: also overwrite error when it is bigger than
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").
