Okay, now we agreed the dirction right now so let me do that in next
version. If you don't see it's reasonable, let me know.

* I will drop the number of CMA *page* allocation attemtps/failures to
make simple start
* I will keep CMA allocation attemtps/failures
* They will be under /sys/kernel/mm/cma/cma-XX/success,fail
* It will turn on CONFIG_CMA && CONFIG_SYSFS

Orthognal work(diffrent patchset)

* adding global CMA alloc/fail into vmstat
* adding alloc_range success/failure under CONFIG_CMA_ALLOC_TRACKING
whatever configuration or just by default if everyone agree

Thanks.
