mm: Close races between THP migration and PMD numa clearing

THP migration uses the page lock to guard against parallel allocations
but there are cases like this still open

  Task A					Task B
  ---------------------				---------------------
  do_huge_pmd_numa_page				do_huge_pmd_numa_page
  lock_page
  mpol_misplaced == -1
  unlock_page
  goto clear_pmdnuma
						lock_page
						mpol_misplaced == 2
						migrate_misplaced_transhuge
  pmd = pmd_mknonnuma
  set_pmd_at

During hours of testing, one crashed with weird errors and while I have
no direct evidence, I suspect something like the race above happened.
This patch extends the page lock to being held until the pmd_numa is
cleared to prevent migration starting in parallel while the pmd_numa is
being cleared. It also flushes the old pmd entry and orders pagetable
insertion before rmap insertion.
