When free pages are done with higher order, time spend on
coalescing pages by buddy allocator can be reduced. With
section size of 256MB, hot add latency of a single section
shows improvement from 50-60 ms to less than 1 ms, hence
improving the hot add latency by 60%.

Modify external providers of online callback to align with
the change.

Changes since v2:
reuse code from __free_pages_boot_core()

Changes since v1:
- Removed prefetch()

Changes since RFC:
- Rebase.
- As suggested by Michal Hocko remove pages_per_block.
- Modifed external providers of online_page_callback.

v2: https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/991363/
v1: https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/989445/
RFC: https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/984754/

I am not sure, but if we are going to use that function from the memory-hotplug code,
we might want to rename that function to something more generic?
The word "boot" suggests that this is only called from the boot stage.

And what about the prefetch operations? 
I saw that you removed them in your previous patch and that had some benefits [1].

Should we remove them here as well?

xen_online_page() isn't very complex and this is the only user.

Why don't you move its body in here and drop the extra function?
And now you can execute the loop with balloon_mutex held instead of
taking and releasing it in each iteration of the loop.

I ll rename it to __free_pages_core()
