Scanning on large machines can take a considerable length of time and
eventually need to be rescheduled. This is treated as an abort event but
that's not appropriate as the attempt is likely to be retried after making
numerous checks and taking another cycle through the page allocator.
This patch will check the need to reschedule if necessary but continue
the scanning.

The main benefit is reduced scanning when compaction is taking a long time
or the machine is over-saturated. It also avoids an unnecessary exit of
compaction that ends up being retried by the page allocator in the outer
loop.
