Check the usage of node_is_toptier(),

- migrate_misplaced_page()
node_is_toptier() is used to check whether migration is a promotion.
We can avoid to use it. Just compare the rank of the nodes.

- change_pte_range() and change_huge_pmd()
node_is_toptier() is used to avoid scanning fast memory (DRAM) pages
for promotion. So I think we should change the name to node_is_fast()
as follows,

static inline bool node_is_fast(int node)
{
return NODE_DATA(node)->mt_rank >= MEMORY_RANK_DRAM;
}

And, as above, I suggest to add memory tier ID and rank to struct
pglist_data directly.

Best Regards,
Huang, Ying
