There are just 3 callers of move_to_free_list() before this patch, I would just
add the to_tail parameter there instead of new wrapper. For callers with
constant parameter, the inline will eliminate it anyway.

Likewise, just 5 callers of move_freepages_block(), all in the files you're
already changing, so no need for this wrappers IMHO.
