Subject[PATCH v10 09/10] mm: stop zeroing memory during allocation in vmemmap
Date
vmemmap_alloc_block() will no longer zero the block, so zero memory
at its call sites for everything except struct pages. Struct page memory
is zero'd by struct page initialization.

Replace allocators in sprase-vmemmap to use the non-zeroing version. So,
we will get the performance improvement by zeroing the memory in parallel
when struct pages are zeroed.

Add struct page zeroing as a part of initialization of other fields in
__init_single_page().

This single thread performance collected on: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7-8895
v3 @ 2.60GHz with 1T of memory (268400646 pages in 8 nodes):

BASE FIX
sparse_init 11.244671836s 0.007199623s
zone_sizes_init 4.879775891s 8.355182299s
--------------------------
Total 16.124447727s 8.362381922s

sparse_init is where memory for struct pages is zeroed, and the zeroing
part is moved later in this patch into __init_single_page(), which is
called from zone_sizes_init().
