arc: get rid of superfluous __GFP_REPEAT
__GFP_REPEAT has a rather weak semantic but since it has been introduced around 2.6.12 it has been ignored for low order allocations. pte_alloc_one_kernel uses __get_order_pte but this is obviously always zero because BITS_FOR_PTE is not larger than 9 yet the page size is always larger than 4K. This means that this flag has never been actually useful here because it has always been used only for PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY requests.
