mm: consider the entire user address space during node migration

Use mm->task_size instead of TASK_SIZE to ensure that the entire user
address space is migrated.  mm->task_size is independent of the calling
task context.  TASK SIZE may be dependant on the address space size of the
calling process.  Usage of TASK_SIZE can lead to partial address space
migration if the calling process was 32 bit and the migrating process was
64 bit.

Here is the test script used on 64 system with a 32 bit echo process:

  mount -t cgroup none /cgroup -o cpuset
  cd /cgroup

  mkdir 0
  echo 1 > 0/cpuset.cpus
  echo 0 > 0/cpuset.mems
  echo 1 > 0/cpuset.memory_migrate

  mkdir 1
  echo 1 > 1/cpuset.cpus
  echo 1 > 1/cpuset.mems
  echo 1 > 1/cpuset.memory_migrate

  echo $$ > 0/tasks
  64_bit_process &
  pid=$!

  echo $pid > 1/tasks   # This does not migrate all process pages without
                        # this patch.  If 64 bit echo is used or this patch is
                        # applied, then the full address space of $pid is
                        # migrated.

To check memory migration, I watched:
  grep MemUsed /sys/devices/system/node/node*/meminfo
