Looks like add_to_free_area() and add_to_free_area_tail() can be moved to
mm/page_alloc.c as all users are there now. And the same for struct
free_area definition (but not declaration).

Okay, that's much easier to read.

Too loaded condition to my taste. Maybe

bool to_tail;
...
if (is_shuffle_order(order))
to_tail = shuffle_pick_tail();
else if (buddy_merge_likely(pfn, buddy_pfn, page, order))
to_tail = true;
else
to_tail = false;

if (to_tail)
add_to_free_area_tail(page, area, migratetype);
else
add_to_free_area(page, area, migratetype);

Why do you move #include <linux/random.h> from .c to .h?
It's not obvious to me.

I don't see a reason in __shuffle_pick_tail() existing if you call it
unconditionally.
