[PATCH] Drop free_pages()

nr_free_pages is now a simple access to a global variable.  Make it a macro
instead of a function.

The nr_free_pages now requires vmstat.h to be included.  There is one
occurrence in power management where we need to add the include.  Directly
refrer to global_page_state() there to clarify why the #include was added.
