__free_pages_ok() disables IRQs before calling a common helper
free_one_page() that acquires the zone lock. This is not safe according
to Documentation/locking/locktypes.rst and in this context, IRQ disabling
is not protecting a per_cpu_pages structure either or a local_lock would
be used.

This patch explicitly acquires the lock with spin_lock_irqsave instead of
relying on a helper. This removes the last instance of local_irq_save()
in page_alloc.c.
