Page migration: Do not accept invalid nodes in the target nodeset
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 31 Aug 2007 07:12:08 +0000 (00:12 -0700)]
Page migration currently does not check if the target of the move contains
nodes that that are invalid (if root attempts to migrate pages)
and may try to allocate from invalid nodes if these are specified
leading to oopses.

Return -EINVAL if an offline node is specified.
