page allocator: do not disable interrupts in free_page_mlock()
free_page_mlock() tests and clears PG_mlocked using locked versions of the bit operations. If set, it disables interrupts to update counters and this happens on every page free even though interrupts are disabled very shortly afterwards a second time. This is wasteful. This patch splits what free_page_mlock() does. The bit check is still made. However, the update of counters is delayed until the interrupts are disabled and the non-lock version for clearing the bit is used. One potential weirdness with this split is that the counters do not get updated if the bad_page() check is triggered but a system showing bad pages is getting screwed already.
