Hmm using zone id was part of the series making munlock faster. Too bad
it's doing the wrong thing on some memory models. Looks like it wasn't
evaluated in isolation, but only as part of the pagevec usage (commit
7a8010cd36273) but most likely it wasn't contributing too much to the
14% speedup.

Out of curiosity, what kind of change?
