mm: create a separate slab for page->ptl allocation



If DEBUG_SPINLOCK and DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC are enabled spinlock_t on x86_64
is 72 bytes.  For page->ptl they will be allocated from kmalloc-96 slab,
so we loose 24 on each.  An average system can easily allocate few tens
thousands of page->ptl and overhead is significant.

Let's create a separate slab for page->ptl allocation to solve this.

To make sure that it really works this time, some numbers from my test
machine (just booted, no load):

Before:
  # grep '^\(kmalloc-96\|page->ptl\)' /proc/slabinfo
  kmalloc-96         31987  32190    128   30    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata   1073   1073     92
After:
  # grep '^\(kmalloc-96\|page->ptl\)' /proc/slabinfo
  page->ptl          27516  28143     72   53    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata    531    531      9
  kmalloc-96          3853   5280    128   30    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata    176    176      0

Note that the patch is useful not only for debug case, but also for
PREEMPT_RT, where spinlock_t is always bloated.
