Subject[PATCH 20/25] mm, compaction: Reduce unnecessary skipping of migration target scanner
Date
The fast isolation of pages can move the scanner faster than is necessary
depending on the contents of the free list. This patch will only allow
the fast isolation to initialise the scanner and advance it slowly. The
primary means of moving the scanner forward is via the linear scanner
to reduce the likelihood the migration source/target scanners meet
prematurely triggering a rescan.

The impact to latency, success rates and scan rates is marginal but
avoiding unnecessary restarts is important. It helps later patches that
are more careful about how pageblocks are treated as earlier iterations
of those patches hit corner cases where the restarts were punishing and
very visible.
