Subject[PATCH 2/2] mm/page_alloc: DEBUG_VM checks for free_list placement of CMA and RESERVE pages
Date
For the MIGRATE_RESERVE pages, it is important they do not get misplaced
on free_list of other migratetype, otherwise the whole MIGRATE_RESERVE
pageblock might be changed to other migratetype in try_to_steal_freepages().
For MIGRATE_CMA, the pages also must not go to a different free_list, otherwise
they could get allocated as unmovable and result in CMA failure.

This is ensured by setting the freepage_migratetype appropriately when placing
pages on pcp lists, and using the information when releasing them back to
free_list. It is also assumed that CMA and RESERVE pageblocks are created only
in the init phase. This patch adds DEBUG_VM checks to catch any regressions
introduced for this invariant.
