Subject: [RFC][v7][PATCH 1/9]: Factor out code to allocate pidmap page

To simplify alloc_pidmap(), move code to allocate a pid map page to a
separate function.

Changelog[v3]:
	- Earlier version of patchset called alloc_pidmap_page() from two
	  places. But now its called from only one place. Even so, moving
	  this code out into a separate function simplifies alloc_pidmap().
Changelog[v2]:
	- (Matt Helsley, Dave Hansen) Have alloc_pidmap_page() return
	  -ENOMEM on error instead of -1.
