[RESEND PATCH] mm/compaction: fix an undefined behaviour




In a low-memory situation, cc->fast_search_fail can keep increasing as
it is unable to find an available page to isolate in
fast_isolate_freepages(). As the result, it could trigger an error
below, so just compare with the maximum bits can be shifted first.

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in mm/compaction.c:1160:30
shift exponent 64 is too large for 64-bit type 'unsigned long'
CPU: 131 PID: 1308 Comm: kcompactd1 Kdump: loaded Tainted: G
W    L    5.0.0+ #17

Resend because Andrew's email was bounced back at some point.
