Subject: [PATCH 3.14 23/37] mm/compaction: do not call suitable_migration_target() on every page

3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@....com>

commit 01ead5340bcf5f3a1cd2452c75516d0ef4d908d7 upstream.

suitable_migration_target() checks that pageblock is suitable for
migration target.  In isolate_freepages_block(), it is called on every
page and this is inefficient.  So make it called once per pageblock.

suitable_migration_target() also checks if page is highorder or not, but
it's criteria for highorder is pageblock order.  So calling it once
within pageblock range has no problem.
