mm, compaction: Use free lists to quickly locate a migration target -fix

Full compaction of a node passes in negative orders which can lead to array
boundary issues. While it could be addressed in the control flow of the
primary loop, it would be fragile so explicitly check for the condition.
This is a fix for the mmotm patch
broken-out/mm-compaction-use-free-lists-to-quickly-locate-a-migration-target.patch
