There is no point in returning -ENOENT from sys_move_pages() if all
pages were already on the right node, while we return 0 if only 1 page
was not. Most application don't know where their pages are allocated,
so it's not an error to try to migrate them anyway.

Just return 0 and let the status array in user-space be checked if the
application needs details.

It will make the upcoming chunked-move_pages() support much easier.
