Okay, I get your point.

unsigned long interval = READ_ONCE(pgdat->numabalancing_migrate_next_window);

if (time_after(jiffies, interval)) {
	interval += msecs_to_jiffies(migrate_interval_millisecs));
	if (xchg(&pgdat->numabalancing_migrate_nr_pages, 0))
		WRITE_ONCE(pgdat->numabalancing_migrate_next_window, interval);
}

Something like this?
