vunmap does page table clear operations twice in the
case when DEBUG_PAGEALLOC_ENABLE_DEFAULT is enabled.

So, clean up the code as that is unintended.

As a perf gain, we save few us. Below ftrace data was
obtained while doing 1 MB of vmalloc/vfree on ARM64
based SoC *without* this patch applied. After this
patch, we can save ~3 us (on 1 extra vunmap_page_range).

 6)   3.281 us    |      vunmap_page_range();
 6) + 45.468 us   |    }
 6)   2.760 us    |    vunmap_page_range();
 6) ! 505.105 us  |  }
