Currently the bcache internal btree node occupies a whole bucket. When
loading the btree node from cache device into memory, mca_data_alloc()
will call bch_btree_keys_alloc() to allocate memory for the whole bucket
size, ilog2(b->c->btree_pages) is send to bch_btree_keys_alloc() as the
parameter 'page_order'.

c->btree_pages is set as bucket_pages() in bch_cache_set_alloc(), for
bucket size > 8MB, ilog2(b->c->btree_pages) is 12 for 4KB page size. By
default the maximum page order __get_free_pages() accepts is MAX_ORDER
(11), in this condition bch_btree_keys_alloc() will always fail.

Because of other over-page-order allocation failure fails the cache
device registration, such btree node allocation failure wasn't observed
during runtime. After other blocking page allocation failures for bucket
size > 8MB, this btree node allocation issue may trigger potentical risk
e.g. infinite dead-loop to retry btree node allocation after failure.

This patch fixes the potential problem by setting c->btree_pages to
meta_bucket_pages() in bch_cache_set_alloc(). In the condition that
bucket size > 8MB, meta_bucket_pages() will always return a number which
won't exceed the maximum page order of the buddy allocator.
