Agreed. Also I noticed that it now depends on MIGRATION instead of
COMPACTION. That intention is correct IMHO, but will fail to
compile/link when both COMPACTION and CMA are disabled, and would need
more changes in mm/internal.h and mm/compaction.c (possibly just
replacing CMA in all "if defined CONFIG_COMPACTION || defined
CONFIG_CMA" instances with COMPACTION_CORE, but there might be more
problems, wanna try? :)

Also, I realized that COMPACTION_CORE is a wrong name, sorry about that.
What the config really provides is alloc_contig_range(), so it should be
named either CONFIG_CMA_CORE (as it provides contiguous memory
allocation, but not the related reservation and accounting), or
something like CONFIG_CONTIG_ALLOC. I would also move it from fs/Kconfig
to mm/Kconfig.
