Subject[v6 14/15] mm: optimize early system hash allocations
Date
Clients can call alloc_large_system_hash() with flag: HASH_ZERO to specify
that memory that was allocated for system hash needs to be zeroed,
otherwise the memory does not need to be zeroed, and client will initialize
it.

If memory does not need to be zero'd, call the new
memblock_virt_alloc_raw() interface, and thus improve the boot performance.
