Relax the object type restrictions on vm_page_alloc_contig(). Specifically, add support for object types that were previously prohibited because they could contain PG_CACHED pages.

Roughly halve the number of radix trie operations performed by vm_page_alloc_contig() using the same approach that is employed by vm_page_alloc(). Also, eliminate the radix trie lookup performed with the free page queues lock held.

Tidy up the handling of radix trie insert failures in vm_page_alloc() and vm_page_alloc_contig().
