[PATCH] memory hotplug: __GFP_NOWARN is better for __kmalloc_section_memmap()
Add __GFP_NOWARN flag to calling of __alloc_pages() in __kmalloc_section_memmap(). It can reduce noisy failure message. In ia64, section size is 1 GB, this means that order 8 pages are necessary for each section's memmap. It is often very hard requirement under heavy memory pressure as you know. So, __alloc_pages() gives up allocation and shows many noisy stack traces which means no page for each sections. (Current my environment shows 32 times of stack trace....) But, __kmalloc_section_memmap() calls vmalloc() after failure of it, and it can succeed allocation of memmap. So, its stack trace warning becomes just noisy. I suppose it shouldn't be shown.
