mm: lower the printk loglevel for __dump_page messages

__dump_page messages use KERN_EMERG resp.  KERN_ALERT loglevel (this is
the case since 2004).  Most callers of this function are really detecting
a critical page state and BUG right after.  On the other hand the function
is called also from contexts which just want to inform about the page
state and those would rather not disrupt logs that much (e.g.  some
systems route these messages to the normal console).

Reduce the loglevel to KERN_WARNING to make dump_page easier to reuse for
other contexts while those messages will still make it to the kernel log
in most setups.  Even if the loglevel setup filters warnings away those
paths that are really critical already print the more targeted error or
panic and that should make it to the kernel log.

[ fix __dump_page()]
[ s/KERN_WARN/KERN_WARNING/, per Michal]
