Subject: mm,shmem,thp: limit shmem THP allocations to requested zones

Hugh pointed out that the gma500 driver uses shmem pages, but needs to
limit them to the DMA32 zone.  Ensure the allocations resulting from the
gfp_mask returned by limit_gfp_mask use the zone flags that were
originally passed to shmem_getpage_gfp.
