This makes the MIGRATE_VMA_SELECT_SYSTEM and MIGRATE_VMA_SELECT_IOMEM
behave entirely identifical, that is redundant.  I think we need to
distinguish between the dfferent cases here.  I think the right check
would be pfn_valid(), which should be true for system memory, and
false for iomem.

Also shouldn't this be called DEVICE_PUBLIC instead of IOMEM?
