remove PAGE_GROUP_BY_MOBILITY



Grouping pages by mobility can be disabled at compile-time. This was
considered undesirable by a number of people. However, in the current stack of
patches, it is not a simple case of just dropping the configurable patch as it
would cause merge conflicts.  This patch backs out the configuration option.

help
The standard allocator will fragment memory over time which means
that high order allocations will fail even if kswapd is running. If
this option is set, the allocator will try and group page types
based on their ability to migrate or reclaim. This is a best effort
attempt at lowering fragmentation which a few workloads care about.
The loss is a more complex allocator that may perform slower. If
you are interested in working with large pages, say Y and set
/proc/sys/vm/min_free_bytes to 16374. Otherwise say N
