[PATCH] mm: move determination of policy_zone into page allocator

Currently the function to build a zonelist for a BIND policy has the side
effect to set the policy_zone.  This seems to be a bit strange.  policy
zone seems to not be initialized elsewhere and therefore 0.  Do we police
ZONE_DMA if no bind policy has been used yet?

This patch moves the determination of the zone to apply policies to into
the page allocator.  We determine the zone while building the zonelist for
nodes.
