[PATCH 1/8] mm, page_alloc: Enable/disable IRQs once when freeing a list of pages




Freeing a list of pages current enables/disables IRQs for each page freed.
This patch splits freeing a list of pages into two operations -- preparing
the pages for freeing and the actual freeing. This is a tradeoff - we're
taking two passes of the list to free in exchange for avoiding multiple
enable/disable of IRQs.

With a tiny number of files, each file truncated has resident page cache
and it shows that time to truncate is roughtly 5-6% with some minor jitter.

As expected, there is a small gain for the delete operation.
