I once was told boolean parameters are the root of all evil, so I tried
to keep them file-local :)

One thing to be aware of is, that inline optimizations won't help as
long as this function is in mm/page_alloc.c, see below.

As long as we don't want to move the implementation to the header, we'll
need it for the constant propagation to work at compile time (we don't
really have link-time optimizations). Or am I missing something?
