Wasn't aware of that, will do. In fact, in earlier versions in was done this way,
but resulted in more #ifdefs.

I decide to use #define for the sake of situations like
is_migrate_cma(get_pageblock_migratetype(page)). With a static inline it will have
to read pageblock's migrate type even if !CONFIG_CMA. A macro gets rid of this
operation all together.

For CMA, we know that pageblock's migrate type is MIGRATE_CMA.

It is never used anyway.

I don't follow. This is only used in code path that fills in pcp lists, so only
the first MIGRATE_PCPTYPES rows are used.

No real advantages, I can revert that change.
