Subject: [PATCH] CMA/HOTPLUG: clear buffer-head lru before page migration

The bh must be free to migrate a page at which bh is mapped.
The reference count of bh is increased when it is installed
into lru so that the bh of lru must be freed before migrating the page.

This frees every bh of lru. We could free only bh of migrating page.
But searching lru costs more than invalidating entire lru.
