Subject[PATCH 4/7] mm/page_alloc: Remove mistaken page == NULL check in rmqueue
Date
If a page allocation fails, the ZONE_BOOSTER_WATERMARK should be tested,
cleared and kswapd woken whether the allocation attempt was via the PCP
or directly via the buddy list.

Remove the page == NULL so the ZONE_BOOSTED_WATERMARK bit is checked
unconditionally. As it is unlikely that ZONE_BOOSTED_WATERMARK is set,
mark the branch accordingly.
