    Subject[25/36] compound pages: Allow use of get_page_unless_zero with compound pages
    This is needed by slab defragmentation. The refcount of a page head
    may be incremented to ensure that a compound page will not go away under us.

    It also may be needed for defragmentation of higher order pages. The
    moving of compound pages may require the establishment of a reference
    before the use of page migration functions.
