Subject[PATCH 06/25] Move check for disabled anti-fragmentation out of fastpath
Date
On low-memory systems, anti-fragmentation gets disabled as there is nothing
it can do and it would just incur overhead shuffling pages between lists
constantly. Currently the check is made in the free page fast path for every
page. This patch moves it to a slow path. On machines with low memory,
there will be small amount of additional overhead as pages get shuffled
between lists but it should quickly settle.
