From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@linux.intel.com>

Add yet another iterator, for_each_free_mem_range_in_zone_from, and then
use it to support initializing and freeing pages in groups no larger than
MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES. By doing this we can greatly improve the cache locality
of the pages while we do several loops over them in the init and freeing
process.

We are able to tighten the loops further as a result of the "from" iterator
as we can perform the initial checks for first_init_pfn in our first call
to the iterator, and continue without the need for those checks via the
"from" iterator. I have added this functionality in the function called
deferred_init_mem_pfn_range_in_zone that primes the iterator and causes us
to exit if we encounter any failure.

On my x86_64 test system with 384GB of memory per node I saw a reduction in
initialization time from 1.85s to 1.38s as a result of this patch.
