[PATCH 1/6] MIPS: do not use __GFP_REPEAT for order-0 request

3377e227af44 ("MIPS: Add 48-bit VA space (and 4-level page tables) for
4K pages.") has added a new __GFP_REPEAT user but using this flag
doesn't really make any sense for order-0 request which is the case here
because PUD_ORDER is 0. __GFP_REPEAT has historically effect only on
allocation requests with order > PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER.

This doesn't introduce any functional change. This is a preparatory
patch for later work which renames the flag and redefines its semantic.
