Due to either a fast search of the free list or a linear scan, it is
possible for multiple compaction instances to pick the same pageblock
for migration.  This is lucky for one scanner and increased scanning for
all the others. It also allows a race between requests on which first
allocates the resulting free block.

This patch tests and updates the pageblock skip for the migration scanner
carefully. When isolating a block, it will check and skip if the block is
already in use. Once the zone lock is acquired, it will be rechecked so
that only one scanner can set the pageblock skip for exclusive use. Any
scanner contending will continue with a linear scan. The skip bit is
still set if no pages can be isolated in a range. While this may result
in redundant scanning, it avoids unnecessarily acquiring the zone lock
when there are no suitable migration sources.

This shows a reasonable reduction in latency as multiple compaction
scanners do not operate on the same blocks with a similar allocation
success rate.

Compaction migrate scanned    41093126    25646769

Migration scan rates are reduced by 38%.
