There are cases where the page_pool need to refill with pages from the
page allocator. Some workloads cause the page_pool to release pages
instead of recycling these pages.

For these workload it can improve performance to bulk alloc pages from
the page-allocator to refill the alloc cache.

For XDP-redirect workload with 100G mlx5 driver (that use page_pool)
redirecting xdp_frame packets into a veth, that does XDP_PASS to create
an SKB from the xdp_frame, which then cannot return the page to the
page_pool. In this case, we saw[1] an improvement of 18.8% from using
the alloc_pages_bulk API (3,677,958 pps -> 4,368,926 pps).
