Subject: [PATCH v4 4/4] mm/page_alloc: restrict max order of merging on isolated pageblock

Current pageblock isolation logic could isolate each pageblock
individually. This causes freepage accounting problem if freepage with
pageblock order on isolate pageblock is merged with other freepage on
normal pageblock. We can prevent merging by restricting max order of
merging to pageblock order if freepage is on isolate pageblock.

Side-effect of this change is that there could be non-merged buddy
freepage even if finishing pageblock isolation, because undoing pageblock
isolation is just to move freepage from isolate buddy list to normal buddy
list rather than to consider merging. But, I think it doesn't matter
because 1) almost allocation request are for equal or below pageblock
order, 2) caller of pageblock isolation will use this freepage so
freepage will split in any case and 3) merge would happen soon after
some alloc/free on this and buddy pageblock.
