Unfortunately the build test fails on both the platforms (powerpc and ia64)
which subscribe HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE and where this check would make
sense. I some how overlooked the cross compile build failure that actually
detected this problem.

But wondering why this assert is not holding true ? and how these platforms
do not see the warning during boot (or do they ?) at mm/vmscan.c:1092 like
arm64 did.

static int __fragmentation_index(unsigned int order, struct contig_page_info *info)
{
        unsigned long requested = 1UL << order;

        if (WARN_ON_ONCE(order >= MAX_ORDER))
                return 0;
....

Can pageblock_order really exceed MAX_ORDER - 1 ?
