[PATCH] driver : staging : ion: optimization for decreasing memory fragmentaion




From: Zhaoyang Huang <zhaoyang.huang@xxxxxxxxxx>

Two action for this patch:
1. set a batch size for system heap's shrinker, which can have it buffer
reasonable page blocks in pool for future allocation.
2. reverse the order sequence when free page blocks, the purpose is also
to have system heap keep as more big blocks as it can.

By testing on an android system with 2G RAM, the changes with setting
batch = 48MB can help reduce the fragmentation obviously and improve
big block allocation speed for 15%.
