Good poking. In fact, while I made this patch, I was very tempted by renaming
is_migrate_cma to cma_pageblock.

        is_migrate_cma(mt)

I don't know who start to use "mt" instead of "migratetype" but anyway, it's
not a good idea.

        is_migrate_cma(migratetype)

It's very clear for me because migratetype is per pageblock, we can know the
function works per pageblock unit.

-ENOPARSE.

migratetype works on pageblock.
I admit mt is really dirty but I used page_alloc.c already has lots of mt, SIGH.

How about this?

1. Let's change all "mt" with "migratetype" again.
2. use is_migrate_isolate and is_migrate_cma for "migratetype".
3. use is_migrate_isolate_page instead of page_isolated_pageblock for "page".

Okay?
