SubjectRE: [PATCH 12/12] percpu: use chunk scan_hint to skip some scanning

> Subject: [PATCH 12/12] percpu: use chunk scan_hint to skip some scanning
>
> Just like blocks, chunks now maintain a scan_hint. This can be used to skip
> some scanning by promoting the scan_hint to be the contig_hint.
> The chunk's scan_hint is primarily updated on the backside and relies on full
> scanning when a block becomes free or the free region spans across blocks.
