Subjectremove antiquated comment from page_alloc.c
This comment, describing how to optimize for gcc-2.2.2, is so outdated
it should be removed. It's also quite doubtful it should ever have been
placed in this file at all (perhaps something under Documentation/ ?).
This patch removes it.

Against 2.5.19.


Cheers,
Bill
