mm: Add notifier in pageblock isolation for balloon drivers
Memory balloon drivers can allocate a large amount of memory which is not movable but could be freed to accomodate memory hotplug remove. Prior to calling the memory hotplug notifier chain the memory in the pageblock is isolated. Currently, if the migrate type is not MIGRATE_MOVABLE the isolation will not proceed, causing the memory removal for that page range to fail. Rather than failing pageblock isolation if the migrateteype is not MIGRATE_MOVABLE, this patch checks if all of the pages in the pageblock, and not on the LRU, are owned by a registered balloon driver (or other entity) using a notifier chain. If all of the non-movable pages are owned by a balloon, they can be freed later through the memory notifier chain and the range can still be isolated in set_migratetype_isolate().
