Subject: mm/page_alloc: add an array-based interface to the bulk page allocator

The proposed callers for the bulk allocator store pages from the bulk
allocator in an array.  This patch adds an array-based interface to the
API to avoid multiple list iterations.  The page list interface is
preserved to avoid requiring all users of the bulk API to allocate and
manage enough storage to store the pages.

[akpm@linux-foundation.org: remove now unused local `allocated']
