Hm, nope. The !CONFIG_COMPACTION variant of try_to_compact_pages() is static
inline that returns COMPACT_CONTINUE, which is defined in compaction.h.
Another solution is to add a "forward" declaration (not actually followed later
by a full definition) of struct alloc_context into compaction.h. Seems to work
here, but I'm not sure if such thing is allowed?
