Yes, I've noticed this during my testing of the patches. The problem is
finding the most suitable function F(x,y) to report the overall
progress, where x is the progress of block jobs (drive mirroring), and y
is the progress of memory migration. Moreover, the drive mirroring is
started prior memory migration, so the F() will be called like this:

F(0, 0), F(0.01, 0), ... F(1, 0), F(1, 0.01), ... F(1, 1).

The question is - what progress should be reported for case F(1, 0)?
I think, we can report the appropriate part of the whole migration:
0% = nothing transferred,
100% = mem + disks size,
so F(1, 0) = (disks size)/(mem + disks size)

However, it's slightly more complicated, as we don't know the sum of
disk sizes at the beginning as disks are migrated one by one. That is,
we know the sum after F(1, 0) not before.

As always, patches are welcome :)
