Subject: [PATCH] mm/vmalloc: introduce alloc_pages_bulk_array_mempolicy to accelerate memory allocation

It will cause significant performance regressions in some situations
as Andrew mentioned in [1]. The main situation is vmalloc, vmalloc
will allocate pages with NUMA_NO_NODE by default, that will result
in alloc page one by one;

In order to solve this, __alloc_pages_bulk and mempolicy should be
considered at the same time.

1) If node is specified in memory allocation request, it will alloc
all pages by __alloc_pages_bulk.

2) If interleaving allocate memory, it will cauculate how many pages
should be allocated in each node, and use __alloc_pages_bulk to alloc
pages in each node.
