Managing memory in 4KiB pages is a serious overhead.  Many benchmarks
benefit from managing memory in larger chunks.  As an example, an earlier
iteration of this idea which used compound pages (and wasn't particularly
tuned) got a 7% performance boost when compiling the kernel.

Using compound pages or THPs exposes a weakness of our type system.
Functions are often unprepared for compound pages to be passed to them,
and may only act on PAGE_SIZE chunks.  Even functions which are aware of
compound pages may expect a head page, and do the wrong thing if passed
a tail page.

We also waste a lot of instructions ensuring that we're not looking at
a tail page.  Almost every call to PageFoo() contains one or more hidden
calls to compound_head().  This also happens for get_page(), put_page()
and many more functions.

This patch series uses a new type, the struct folio, to manage memory.
It provides some basic infrastructure that's worthwhile in its own right,
shrinking the kernel by about 6kB of text.

This is the first batch of patches for the next merge window.  They are
identical to the ones sent yesterday to linux-kernel and the build bots
didn't complain about any of these.  They have been extensively reviewed.
Please apply.
