mm/hugetlb.c: don't zero 1GiB bootmem pages
When using 1GiB pages during early boot, use the new memblock_virt_alloc_try_nid_raw() to allocate memory without zeroing it. Zeroing out hundreds or thousands of GiB in a single core memset() call is very slow, and can make early boot last upwards of 20-30 minutes on multi TiB machines. The memory does not need to be zero'd as the hugetlb pages are always zero'd on page fault. Tested: Booted with ~3800 1G pages, and it booted successfully in roughly the same amount of time as with 0, as opposed to the 25+ minutes it would take before.
