Subject: [RFC PATCH 3/3] mm: Identify compound pages sooner in
 isolate_migratepages_block

From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@...ux.intel.com>

Since we are holding a reference to the page much sooner in
isolate_migratepages_block we could move the PageCompound check out of the
LRU locked section and instead just place it after get_page_unless_zero. By
doing this we can allow any of the items that might trigger a failure to
trigger a failure for the compound page rather than the order 0 page and as
a result we should be able to process the pageblock faster.

In addition by testing for PageCompound sooner we can avoid having the LRU
flag cleared and then reset in the exception case. As a result this should
prevent any possible races where another thread might be attempting to pull
the LRU pages from the list.
