mm/page_alloc.c: remove duplicate check
While allocating pages using buddy allocator, the compound page is probably split up to free pages. Under these circumstances, the compound page should be destroyed by destroy_compound_page(). However, there is a duplicate check to judge if the page is compound. Remove the duplicate check since the compound_order() returns 0 when the page doesn't have PG_head set in destroy_compound_page(). That is to say, destroy_compound_page() needn't check PageHead().
