mm, compaction: persistently skip hugetlbfs pageblocks

It is pointless to migrate hugetlb memory as part of memory compaction
if the hugetlb size is equal to the pageblock order.  No defragmentation
is occurring in this condition.

It is also pointless to for the freeing scanner to scan a pageblock
where a hugetlb page is pinned.  Unconditionally skip these pageblocks,
and do so peristently so that they are not rescanned until it is
observed that these hugepages are no longer pinned.

It would also be possible to do this by involving the hugetlb subsystem
in marking pageblocks to no longer be skipped when they hugetlb pages
are freed.  This is a simple solution that doesn't involve any
additional subsystems in pageblock skip manipulation.
