Currently, __alloc_contig_migrate_range can generate -EINTR, -ENOMEM or -EBUSY,
and report them down the chain.
The problem is that when migrate_pages() reports -ENOMEM, we keep going till we
exhaust all the try-attempts (5 at the moment) instead of bailing out.

migrate_pages() bails out right away on -ENOMEM because it is considered a fatal
error. Do the same here instead of keep going and retrying.
Note that this is not fixing a real issue, just a cosmetic change. Although we
can save some cycles by backing off ealier
