From my understand of mmu_notifier document, mmu_notifier_invalidate_range()
is needed only if the PTE is updated to point to a new page or the page pointed
by the PTE is freed. Page migration does not fall into either case.
In addition, in migrate_pages(), more specifically try_to_migrate_one(),
there is a pair of mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start() and
mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_end() around the PTE manipulation code, which should
be sufficient to notify secondary TLBs (including KVM) about the PTE change
for page migration. Correct me if I am wrong.
