Currently the proactive compaction order is fixed to
COMPACTION_HPAGE_ORDER(9), it's OK in most machines with lots of
normal 4KB memory, but it's too high for the machines with small
normal memory, for example the machines with most memory configured
as 1GB hugetlbfs huge pages. In these machines the max order of
free pages is often below 9, and it's always below 9 even with hard
compaction. This will lead to proactive compaction be triggered very
frequently. In these machines we only care about order of 3 or 4.
This patch export the oder to proc and let it configurable
by user, and the default value is still COMPACTION_HPAGE_ORDER.

Changes in v2:
    - fix the compile error in ia64 and powerpc
    - change the hard coded max order number from 10 to MAX_ORDER - 1

I agree with the idea of making the target order configurable as you may not
always care about the hugepage order in particular.

This should be SYSCTL_ONE. Fragmentation wrt order 0 is always going to be 0.

Thanks,

This should go into the #ifdef CONFIG_COMPACTION section
below
