Subject[PATCH 5/7] migrate_pages(): fix failure counting for THP on -ENOSYS
If THP or hugetlbfs page migration isn't supported, unmap_and_move()
or unmap_and_move_huge_page() will return -ENOSYS. For THP, splitting
will be tried, but if splitting doesn't succeed, the THP will be left
in "from" list wrongly. If some other pages are retried, the THP
migration failure will counted again. This is fixed via moving the
failure THP from "from" to "ret_pages".

Another issue of the original code is that the unsupported failure
processing isn't consistent between THP and hugetlbfs page. Make them
consistent in this patch to make the code easier to be understood too.
