[PATCH 1/3] mm: correct return value of migrate_pages()

From: Joonsoo Kim
Date: Mon Jul 16 2012 - 12:16:07 EST

migrate_pages() should return number of pages not migrated or error code.
When unmap_and_move return -EAGAIN, outer loop is re-execution without
initialising nr_failed. This makes nr_failed over-counted.

So this patch correct it by initialising nr_failed in outer loop.
