mm: cma: remove watermark hacks
Commits 2139cbe627b8 ("cma: fix counting of isolated pages") and d95ea5d18e69 ("cma: fix watermark checking") introduced a reliable method of free page accounting when memory is being allocated from CMA regions, so the workaround introduced earlier by commit 49f223a9cd96 ("mm: trigger page reclaim in alloc_contig_range() to stabilise watermarks") can be finally removed.
