Pages allocated via the page allocator or CMA get its private field cleared
by means of post_alloc_hook().
Pages allocated during boot, that is directly from the memblock allocator,
get cleared by paging_init()->..->memmap_init_zone->..->__init_single_page()
before any memblock allocation.

Based on this ground, let us remove the clearing of the flag from
prep_new_huge_page() as it is not needed.
This was a leftover from 6c0371490140 ("hugetlb: convert PageHugeFreed
to HPageFreed flag"). Previously the explicit clearing was necessary
because compound allocations do not get this initialization
(see prep_compound_page).
