| Subject: [v12][PATCH 1/9] Factor out code to allocate pidmap page
| 
| To simplify alloc_pidmap(), move code to allocate a pid map page to a
| separate function.
| 
| Changelog[v3]:
| 	- Earlier version of patchset called alloc_pidmap_page() from two
| 	  places. But now its called from only one place. Even so, moving
| 	  this code out into a separate function simplifies alloc_pidmap().
| Changelog[v2]:
| 	- (Matt Helsley, Dave Hansen) Have alloc_pidmap_page() return
| 	  -ENOMEM on error instead of -1.
