Subject[PATCH] mm, compaction: Round-robin the order while searching the free lists for a target -fix
Dan Carpenter reported the following static checker warning:

mm/compaction.c:1252 next_search_order()
warn: impossible condition '(cc->search_order < 0) => (0-u16max < 0)'

While a negative order never makes sense, the control flow is
easier if search_order is signed. This is a fix to the mmotm patch
broken-out/mm-compaction-round-robin-the-order-while-searching-the-free-lists-for-a-target.patch
