Subject[Use cpuops V1 02/11] vmstat: Optimize zone counter modifications through the use of this cpu operations
this cpu operations can be used to slightly optimize the function. The
changes will avoid some address calculations and replace them with the
use of the percpu segment register.

If one would have this_cpu_inc_return and this_cpu_dec_return then it
would be possible to optimize inc_zone_page_state and dec_zone_page_state even
more.

V1->V2:
- Fix __dec_zone_state overflow handling
- Use s8 variables for temporary storage.

V2->V3:
- Put __percpu annotations in correct places.
