Subject[PATCH 7/7] vmscan: isolated_lru_pages() stop neighbor search if neighbor can't be isolated
Date
isolate_lru_pages() doesn't only isolate LRU tail pages, but also
isolate neighbor pages of the eviction page.

Now, the neighbor search don't stop even if neighbors can't be isolated.
It is silly. successful higher order allocation need full contenious
memory, even though only one page reclaim failure mean to fail making
enough contenious memory.

Then, isolate_lru_pages() should stop to search PFN neighbor pages and
try to search next page on LRU soon. This patch does it. Also all of
lumpy reclaim failure account nr_lumpy_failed.
