I'm wondering, ain't simple enabling of config
DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT provide even better speed-up? If that is the
case then it seems like this series is not needed at all, right?
I am not sure why is this config optional. It looks like it could be
enabled by default or even unconditionally considering that with
commit c9e97a1997fb ("mm: initialize pages on demand during boot") the
deferred code is statically disabled after all the pages are
initialized.
