Thanks for adding the missing part.

I think we need. As long as there is "existing page was already on a
node that does not follow the policy" with MPOL_MF_STRICT, it should
return -EIO. So, even though the vma is not migratable it should check
if the above condition is true or not.

I will wrap all the stuff into a formal patch.
