[PATCH] FRV: Clean up bootmem allocator's page freeing algorithm
The attached patch cleans up the way the bootmem allocator frees pages. A new function, __free_pages_bootmem(), is provided in mm/page_alloc.c that is called from mm/bootmem.c to turn pages over to the main allocator. All the bits of code to initialise pages (clearing PG_reserved and setting the page count) are moved to here. The checks on page validity are removed, on the assumption that the struct page arrays will have been prepared correctly.
