hugetlb, memory_hotplug: prefer to use reserved pages for migration

new_node_page will try to use the origin's next NUMA node as the
migration destination for hugetlb pages.  If such a node doesn't have
any preallocated pool it falls back to __alloc_buddy_huge_page_no_mpol
to allocate a surplus page instead.  This is quite subotpimal for any
configuration when hugetlb pages are no distributed to all NUMA nodes
evenly.  Say we have a hotplugable node 4 and spare hugetlb pages are
node 0


Now we consume the whole pool on node 4 and try to offline this node.
All the allocated pages should be moved to node0 which has enough
preallocated pages to hold them.  With the current implementation
offlining very likely fails because hugetlb allocations during runtime
are much less reliable.

Fix this by reusing the nodemask which excludes migration source and try
to find a first node which has a page in the preallocated pool first and
fall back to __alloc_buddy_huge_page_no_mpol only when the whole pool is

[ remove bogus arg from alloc_huge_page_nodemask() stub]
