KVM is hanging on postcopy live migration.

David tracked it down to commit
ce53053ce378c21e7ffc45241fd67d6ee79daa2b and the problem is pretty
obvious then.

Either we teach get_user_pages_locked/unlocked to handle FOLL_NOWAIT
(so faultin_nopage works right even when the nonblocking pointer is
not NULL) or we need to revert part of commit
ce53053ce378c21e7ffc45241fd67d6ee79daa2b and keep using FOLL_NOWAIT
only as parameter to get_user_pages (which won't ever set nonblocking
pointer to non-NULL). I suppose the former approach is preferred to be
more robust.
