alloc_gigantic_page() implements an allocation method where it scans over
various zones looking for a large contiguous memory block which could not
have been allocated through the buddy allocator. A subsequent patch which
tests arch page table helpers needs such a method to allocate PUD_SIZE
sized memory block. In the future such methods might have other use cases
as well. So alloc_gigantic_page() has been split carving out actual memory
allocation method and made available via new alloc_gigantic_page_order().

Should we move alloc_gigantic_page_order() to page_alloc.c and declarations
to include/linux/gfp.h instead ? This is still very much HugeTLB specific.
