Same comment as v1 with respect to the impact of enabling/disabling IRQs
for each page allocated -- it hurts performance regardless of whether
page owner is enabled or not. If returning a single page is undesirable
then a slightly different alternative is to only enable IRQs if page
owner is set and then goto "Attempt the batch allocation" to reacquire
the lock and lookup pcp.
