Sigh, one hint in the log is
Bad page state in process ''
page:ffffe2000c8e59c0 flags:0x0200000000080018 mapping:000
0000000000000 mapcount:0 count:0

- the page was mapped one.
- a page is swapbacked ....Anon or Shmem/tmpfs.
- mapping is NULL

When it was a *source* page.
.. if it was Anon, page->mapping was cleared by migrate_page_copy()
.. if not, replacement in radix-tree was succeeded.

When it was a destination page
.. page-flags is copied, then, migrate_page_copy() was called.
.. newpage->mapping is cleared only at migration failure.

Hmm..I think the troublesome page is *source* page now.

Anyway, thanks.
