page allocator: move check for disabled anti-fragmentation out of fastpath

On low-memory systems, anti-fragmentation gets disabled as there is
nothing it can do and it would just incur overhead shuffling pages between
lists constantly.  Currently the check is made in the free page fast path
for every page.  This patch moves it to a slow path.  On machines with low
memory, there will be small amount of additional overhead as pages get
shuffled between lists but it should quickly settle.
