mm, hugetlb: unclutter hugetlb allocation layers

Patch series "mm, hugetlb: allow proper node fallback dequeue".

While working on a hugetlb migration issue addressed in a separate
patchset[1] I have noticed that the hugetlb allocations from the
preallocated pool are quite subotimal.

 [1] //lkml.kernel.org/r/20170608074553.22152-1-mhocko@kernel.org

There is no fallback mechanism implemented and no notion of preferred
node.  I have tried to work around it but Vlastimil was right to push
back for a more robust solution.  It seems that such a solution is to
reuse zonelist approach we use for the page alloctor.

This series has 3 patches.  The first one tries to make hugetlb
allocation layers more clear.  The second one implements the zonelist
hugetlb pool allocation and introduces a preferred node semantic which
is used by the migration callbacks.  The last patch is a clean up.

This patch (of 3):

Hugetlb allocation path for fresh huge pages is unnecessarily complex
and it mixes different interfaces between layers.

__alloc_buddy_huge_page is the central place to perform a new
allocation.  It checks for the hugetlb overcommit and then relies on
__hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page to invoke the page allocator.  This is
all good except that __alloc_buddy_huge_page pushes vma and address down
the callchain and so __hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page has to deal with
two different allocation modes - one for memory policy and other node
specific (or to make it more obscure node non-specific) requests.

This just screams for a reorganization.

This patch pulls out all the vma specific handling up to
__alloc_buddy_huge_page_with_mpol where it belongs.
__alloc_buddy_huge_page will get nodemask argument and
__hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page will become a trivial wrapper over the
page allocator.

In short:
__alloc_buddy_huge_page_with_mpol - memory policy handling
  __alloc_buddy_huge_page - overcommit handling and accounting
    __hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page - page allocator layer

Also note that __hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page and its cpuset retry loop
is not really needed because the page allocator already handles the
cpusets update.

Finally __hugetlb_alloc_buddy_huge_page had a special case for node
specific allocations (when no policy is applied and there is a node
given).  This has relied on __GFP_THISNODE to not fallback to a different
node.  alloc_huge_page_node is the only caller which relies on this
behavior so move the __GFP_THISNODE there.

Not only does this remove quite some code it also should make those
layers easier to follow and clear wrt responsibilities.
