page allocator: calculate the alloc_flags for allocation only once
Factor out the mapping between GFP and alloc_flags only once. Once factored out, it only needs to be calculated once but some care must be taken. [neilb@suse.de says] As the test: - if (((p->flags & PF_MEMALLOC) || unlikely(test_thread_flag(TIF_MEMDIE))) - && !in_interrupt()) { - if (!(gfp_mask & __GFP_NOMEMALLOC)) { has been replaced with a slightly weaker one: + if (alloc_flags & ALLOC_NO_WATERMARKS) { Without care, this would allow recursion into the allocator via direct reclaim. This patch ensures we do not recurse when PF_MEMALLOC is set but TF_MEMDIE callers are now allowed to directly reclaim where they would have been prevented in the past.
