Subject[PATCH v6 04/11] mm, compaction: don't recheck watermarks after COMPACT_SUCCESS
Date
Joonsoo has reminded me that in a later patch changing watermark checks
throughout compaction I forgot to update checks in try_to_compact_pages() and
compactd_do_work(). Closer inspection however shows that they are redundant now
that compact_zone() reliably reports success with COMPACT_SUCCESS, as they just
repeat (a subset) of checks that have just passed. So instead of checking
watermarks again, just test the return value.

Also remove the stray "bool success" variable from kcompactd_do_work().
