__PageMovable without holding page_lock could be raced so need to check
if it's okay to miss some of pages offlining by the race.
When I read description of soft_offline_page, it seems to be okay.
Just wanted double check. :)

I doubt we need to add such limitation(i.e., Only LRU pages could be write-backed).
Do you have some reason to add that code?

Ditto.

isolate_lru_page removes PG_lru so this check will be false. Namely, happens
isolated count mismatch happens.
