Subject: mm/page_alloc: optimize code layout for __alloc_pages_bulk

Looking at perf-report and ASM-code for __alloc_pages_bulk() it is clear
that the code activated is suboptimal.  The compiler guesses wrong and
places unlikely code at the beginning.  Due to the use of WARN_ON_ONCE()
macro the UD2 asm instruction is added to the code, which confuse the
I-cache prefetcher in the CPU.
