Two minor nits on the commit log message:
* there seems to be a whitespage missing in your short log:
"... mm/compaction:let ..."
--> I will fix it in next patch.

* has the path really been reported by a test robot?
--> Yes. There is a compile error in v1, I fixed it in v2.

A note on the sysctl name, I'd suggest that it perhaps should reflect the fact that we're adjusting the order for proactive compation.
How about "proactive_compation_order"?
--> I will change it in next patch.

Cheers,
