mm: disable deferred struct page for 32-bit arches
Deferred struct page init is needed only on systems with large amount of physical memory to improve boot performance. 32-bit systems do not benefit from this feature. Jiri reported a problem where deferred struct pages do not work well with x86-32: [ 0.035162] Dentry cache hash table entries: 131072 (order: 7, 524288 bytes) [ 0.035725] Inode-cache hash table entries: 65536 (order: 6, 262144 bytes) [ 0.036269] Initializing CPU#0 [ 0.036513] Initializing HighMem for node 0 (00036ffe:0007ffe0) [ 0.038459] page:f6780000 is uninitialized and poisoned [ 0.038460] raw: ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff [ 0.039509] page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(1 && PageCompound(page)) [ 0.040038] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 0.040399] kernel BUG at include/linux/page-flags.h:293!

Ordinarily all struct pages are initialised during early boot in a
single thread. On very large machines this can take a considerable
