page allocator: do not disable interrupts in free_page_mlock()

free_page_mlock() tests and clears PG_mlocked using locked versions of the
bit operations.  If set, it disables interrupts to update counters and
this happens on every page free even though interrupts are disabled very
shortly afterwards a second time.  This is wasteful.

This patch splits what free_page_mlock() does.  The bit check is still
made.  However, the update of counters is delayed until the interrupts are
disabled and the non-lock version for clearing the bit is used.  One
potential weirdness with this split is that the counters do not get
updated if the bad_page() check is triggered but a system showing bad
pages is getting screwed already.
