Subject[PATCH 1/5] Fix calculation in move_freepages_block for counting pages
Date

move_freepages_block() returns the number of blocks moved. This value is
used to determine if a block of pages should be stolen for the exclusive
use of a migrate type or not. However, the value returned is being used
correctly. This patch fixes the calculation to return the number of base
pages that have been moved.

This should be considered a fix to the patch move-free-pages-between-lists-on-steal.patch

Credit to Andy Whitcroft for spotting the problem.
