When we free a page whose order is very close to MAX_ORDER and greater
than pageblock_order, it wastes some CPU cycles to increase max_order
to MAX_ORDER one by one and check the pageblock migratetype of that page
repeatedly especially when MAX_ORDER is much larger than pageblock_order.

Changes in v2:
 - Rework the code suggested by Vlastimil. Thanks.

I would add:

We also should not be checking migratetype of buddy when "order == MAX_ORDER -
1" as the buddy pfn may be invalid, so adjust the condition. With the new check,
we don't need the max_order check anymore, so we replace it.

Also adjust max_order initialization so that it's lower by one than previously,
which makes the code hopefully more clear.
