This can probably be worked into patch 4 instead of doing it here. I could
pull all the functions that are renamed to _free_list from _free_area into
page_alloc.c and leave behind the ones that remained as _free_area such as
get_page_from_free_area. That should make it easier for me to avoid having
to include page_reporting.h in mmzone.h.

I'm not sure I follow what you are saying about the free_area definition.
It looks like it is a part of the zone structure so I would think it still
needs to be defined in the header.
