Subject[ 55/70] mm: setup pageblock_order before its used by sparsemem
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Xishi Qiu <qiuxishi@huawei.com>

commit ca57df79d4f64e1a4886606af4289d40636189c5 upstream.

On architectures with CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE set, such as
Itanium, pageblock_order is a variable with default value of 0. It's set
to the right value by set_pageblock_order() in function
free_area_init_core().

But pageblock_order may be used by sparse_init() before free_area_init_core()
is called along path:
sparse_init()
->sparse_early_usemaps_alloc_node()
->usemap_size()
->SECTION_BLOCKFLAGS_BITS
->((1UL << (PFN_SECTION_SHIFT - pageblock_order)) *
NR_PAGEBLOCK_BITS)

The uninitialized pageblock_size will cause memory wasting because
usemap_size() returns a much bigger value then it's really needed.

For example, on an Itanium platform,
sparse_init() pageblock_order=0 usemap_size=24576
free_area_init_core() before pageblock_order=0, usemap_size=24576
free_area_init_core() after pageblock_order=12, usemap_size=8

That means 24K memory has been wasted for each section, so fix it by calling
set_pageblock_order() from sparse_init().
