page allocator: calculate the preferred zone for allocation only once



get_page_from_freelist() can be called multiple times for an allocation.
Part of this calculates the preferred_zone which is the first usable zone
in the zonelist but the zone depends on the GFP flags specified at the
beginning of the allocation call.  This patch calculates preferred_zone
once.  It's safe to do this because if preferred_zone is NULL at the start
of the call, no amount of direct reclaim or other actions will change the
fact the allocation will fail.
