Group high-order atomic allocations



In rare cases, the kernel needs to allocate a high-order block of pages
without sleeping.  For example, this is the case with e1000 cards configured
to use jumbo frames.  Migrating or reclaiming pages in this situation is not
an option.

This patch groups these allocations together as much as possible by adding a
new MIGRATE_TYPE.  The MIGRATE_HIGHATOMIC type are exactly what they sound
like.  Care is taken that pages of other migrate types do not use the same
blocks as high-order atomic allocations.
