I've looked at this code again. honestly I'm a abit confusing even though both your
suggestions seems reasonable.

now COMPACTBLOCKS is tracking #-of-called-migrate_pages. but I can't imazine
how to use it. can you please explain this ststics purpose? probably this is only useful
when conbination other stats, and the name should be consist with such combination one.
