Subject[PATCH 19/34] mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware again
Date
commit c82449352854ff09e43062246af86bdeb628f0c3 upstream.

Stable note: Not tracked in Bugzilla. A fix aimed at preserving page aging
information by reducing LRU list churning had the side-effect of
reducing THP allocation success rates. This was part of a series
to restore the success rates while preserving the reclaim fix.

Commit [39deaf85: mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware]
noted that compaction does not migrate dirty or writeback pages and
that is was meaningless to pick the page and re-add it to the LRU list.
This had to be partially reverted because some dirty pages can be
migrated by compaction without blocking.

This patch updates "mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page" by skipping
over pages that migration has no possibility of migrating to minimise
LRU disruption.
