Seems like for free_pcppages_bulk() this patch makes it check for each page on
the pcplist
- zone->nr_isolate_pageblock != 0 instead of local bool (the performance might
be the same I guess on modern cpu though)
- is_migrate_isolate(migratetype) for a migratetype obtained by
get_pcppage_migratetype() which cannot be migrate_isolate so the check is useless.

As such it doesn't seem a worthwhile cleanup to me considering all the other
microoptimisations?
