That should be

do {} while (0)

otherwise a block like this

if (foo)
	count_compact_event(COMPACTFREE_SCANNED)
bar;

will get parsed as

if (foo)
	bar;

which is wrong.

Now that I look at the do {} while (0) thing it is also strictly speaking
wrong for count_vm_numa_events() too because it would do the wrong thing for

count_compact_events(COMPACTFREE_SCANNED, foo++);

There happens to be no examples where we depend on such side-effects but
I've taken a TODO item to fix it up in the New Year.
