SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm/isolate: Drop pre-validating migrate type in undo_isolate_page_range()

unset_migratetype_isolate take zone lock and it is always preferable to
skip not take this lock if we know it would be pointless. Besides that
undo_isolate_page_range is a slow path so a nano optimizing it is not
