block: fix queue bounce limit setting
Impact: don't set GFP_DMA in q->bounce_gfp unnecessarily All DMA address limits are expressed in terms of the last addressable unit (byte or page) instead of one plus that. However, when determining bounce_gfp for 64bit machines in blk_queue_bounce_limit(), it compares the specified limit against 0x100000000UL to determine whether it's below 4G ending up falsely setting GFP_DMA in q->bounce_gfp. As DMA zone is very small on x86_64, this makes larger SG_IO transfers very eager to trigger OOM killer. Fix it. While at it, rename the parameter to @dma_mask for clarity and convert comment to proper winged style. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
