mm-tracepoint: rename page-free events
Rename mm_page_free_direct into mm_page_free and mm_pagevec_free into mm_page_free_batched Since v2.6.33-5426-gc475dab the kernel triggers mm_page_free_direct for all freed pages, not only for directly freed. So, let's name it properly. For pages freed via page-list we also trigger mm_page_free_batched event.
