Subject[PATCH 7/9] mm, page_alloc: move draining pcplists to page isolation users
Date
Currently, pcplists are drained during set_migratetype_isolate() which means
once per pageblock processed start_isolate_page_range(). This is somewhat
wasteful. Moreover, the callers might need different guarantees, and the
draining is currently prone to races and does not guarantee that no page
from isolated pageblock will end up on the pcplist after the drain.

Better guarantees are added by later patches and require explicit actions
by page isolation users that need them. Thus it makes sense to move the
current imperfect draining to the callers also as a preparation step.
