OK, I see. Can we just get rid of acct_isolated altogether? Why cannot
we simply update NR_ISOLATED_* while isolating pages? Just looking at
isolate_migratepages_block:
acct_isolated(zone, cc);
putback_movable_pages(&cc->migratepages);

suggests we are doing something suboptimal. I guess we cannot get rid of
__PageMoveble checks which is sad because that just adds a lot of
confusion because checking for !__PageMovable(page) for LRU pages is
just a head scratcher (LRU pages are movable arent' they?). Maybe it
would be even good to get rid of this misnomer. PageNonLRUMovable?

Anyway, I would suggest to do something like this. Batching NR_ISOLATED*
just doesn't make all that much sense as these are per-cpu and the
resulting code seems to be easier without it.
