IMHO get_pageblock_migratetype() would be nicer - I guess the compiler
will optimize out the double page_to_pfn().

So If I get it right:

post_alloc_hook() does quite some stuff like
- arch_alloc_page(page, order);
- kernel_map_pages(page, 1 << order, 1)
- kasan_alloc_pages()
- kernel_poison_pages(1)
- set_page_owner()

Which free_pages_prepare() will undo, like
- reset_page_owner()
- kernel_poison_pages(0)
- arch_free_page()
- kernel_map_pages()
- kasan_free_nondeferred_pages()

Both would be skipped now - which sounds like the right thing to do IMHO
(and smells like quite a performance improvement). I haven't verified if
actually everything we skip in free_pages_prepare() is safe (I think it
is, it seems to be mostly relevant for actually used/allocated pages).
