I can do that, although I would tweak this slightly and do something more
like:
if (is_shuffle_order(order))
to_tail = shuffle_pick_tail();
else
to_tail = buddy+_merge_likely(pfn, buddy_pfn, page, order);

Because I had originally put the shuffle logic in an inline function. I
can undo that now as I when back to doing the randomness in the .c
sometime v5 I believe.

That is for compilation purposes. The function is not used in the
shuffle_pick_tail below that always returns false.
