Subject[v3 7/9] x86: teach x86 not to zero struct pages memory
If we are using deferred struct page initialization feature, most of
"struct page"es are getting initialized after other CPUs are started, and
hence we are benefiting from doing this job in parallel. However, we are
still zeroing all the memory that is allocated for "struct pages" using the
boot CPU. This patch solves this problem, by deferring zeroing "struct
pages" to only when they are initialized on x86 platforms.
