Well, no.

You didn't get what I said. In process_efi_entries() mirrorred
regions are picked. If movable_node specified, mirror feature will be
ignored. That has been handled in find_zone_movable_pfns_for_nodes()
very well. So you need make it be consistent. 

And if you add a new kernel para, like immovable_mem=xx@xx, movable_node
will be expected. Anyway, please read find_zone_movable_pfns_for_nodes()
carefully.

Thanks
