Historically when freeing pages, free_one_page() assumed that callers
had IRQs disabled and the zone->lock could be acquired with spin_lock().
This confuses the scope of what local_lock_irq is protecting and what
zone->lock is protecting in free_unref_page_list in particular.

This patch uses spin_lock_irqsave() for the zone->lock in
free_one_page() instead of relying on callers to have disabled
IRQs. free_unref_page_commit() is changed to only deal with PCP pages
protected by the local lock. free_unref_page_list() then first frees
isolated pages to the buddy lists with free_one_page() and frees the rest
of the pages to the PCP via free_unref_page_commit(). The end result
is that free_one_page() is no longer depending on side-effects of
local_lock to be correct.

Note that this may incur a performance penalty while memory hot-remove
is running but that is not a common operation.
