1, it make both functions available in wider region regardless of
whether macro __KERNEL__ is defined
2, get_count_order() locates out off region limited by macro __KERNEL__
before the recent commit c513b4cd2fe9
("mm-vmalloc-fix-align-value-calculation-error-v2-fix-fix")
it maybe more perfect to keep its original region and place its counterpart
get_count_order_long() nearly

thanks for your reply
