mm, compaction: distinguish contended status in tracepoints
Compaction returns prematurely with COMPACT_PARTIAL when contended or has fatal signal pending. This is ok for the callers, but might be misleading in the traces, as the usual reason to return COMPACT_PARTIAL is that we think the allocation should succeed. After this patch we distinguish the premature ending condition in the mm_compaction_finished and mm_compaction_end tracepoints. The contended status covers the following reasons: - lock contention or need_resched() detected in async compaction - fatal signal pending - too many pages isolated in the zone (only for async compaction) Further distinguishing the exact reason seems unnecessary for now.
