struct per_cpu_pages is protected by the pagesets lock but it can be
embedded within struct per_cpu_pages at a minor cost. This is possible
because per-cpu lookups are based on offsets. Paraphrasing an explanation
from Peter Ziljstra

  The whole thing relies on:

    &per_cpu_ptr(msblk->stream, cpu)->lock == per_cpu_ptr(&msblk->stream->lock, cpu)

  Which is true because the lhs:

    (local_lock_t *)((zone->per_cpu_pages + per_cpu_offset(cpu)) + offsetof(struct per_cpu_pages, lock))

  and the rhs:

    (local_lock_t *)((zone->per_cpu_pages + offsetof(struct per_cpu_pages, lock)) + per_cpu_offset(cpu))

  are identical, because addition is associative.

More details are included in mmzone.h. This embedding is not completely
free for three reasons.

1. As local_lock does not return a per-cpu structure, the PCP has to
   be looked up twice -- first to acquire the lock and again to get the
   PCP pointer.

2. For PREEMPT_RT and CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC, local_lock is potentially
   a spinlock or has lock-specific tracking. In both cases, it becomes
   necessary to release/acquire different locks when freeing a list of
   pages in free_unref_page_list.

3. For most kernel configurations, local_lock_t is empty and no storage is
   required. By embedding the lock, the memory consumption on PREEMPT_RT
   and CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is higher.
