Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 08/25] page_alloc: in move_freepages(), skip pages instead of VM_BUG on node differences.

With dynamic numa, pages are going to be gradully moved from one node to
another, causing the page ranges that move_freepages() examines to
contain pages that actually belong to another node.

When dynamic numa is enabled, we skip these pages instead of VM_BUGing
out on them.

This additionally moves the VM_BUG_ON() (which detects a change in node)
so that it follows the pfn_valid_within() check.
