Subject[PATCH] mm, compaction: make sure we isolate a valid freepage when high_pfn is used
In fast_isolate_freepages, high_pfn will be used if a prefered one(PFN >= low_fn) not found. But the high_pfn
is not reset before searching an free area, so when it was used as freepage, it may from another free area searched before.
And move_freelist_head(freelist, freepage) will have unexpected behavior(eg. corrupt the MOVABLE freelist)

The issue was reported on an smart phone product with 6GB ram and 3GB zram as swap device.

This patch fixes the issue by reset high_pfn before searching each free area, which ensure
freepage and freelist match when call move_freelist_head in fast_isolate_freepages().
