I've tested on newsmips. "time make" on building GENERIC said:

malloc: 10770.145u 1191.785s 3:27:29.50 96.0%    0+0k 1064+14844io 1176pf+0w
pool:   10556.347u 1184.212s 3:24:11.53 95.8%    0+0k 1074+14838io 1176pf+0w

I think the results are notable. If there are no objections,
I'll commit the changes for mips/pmap.c.

I also tried on macppc, but the kernel using pool hanged up
after mountroot. I will punt it to powerpc guys..
