[PATCH V4 3/3] mm: compaction: fix wakeup logic of proactive compaction

From: Charan Teja Reddy
Date: Fri Jun 18 2021 - 11:23:53 EST

Currently, proactive compaction tries to get triggered for every
HPAGE_FRAG_CHECK_INTERVAL_MSEC(=500msec) even when proactive compaction
is disabled with sysctl.compaction_proactiveness = 0. This results in
kcompactd thread wakes up and goes to sleep for every 500msec with out
the need of doing proactive compaction. Though this doesn't have any
overhead, few cpu cycles can be saved by avoid of waking up kcompactd
thread for proactive compaction when it is disabled.
