    Isn't that "if possible" bogus. I thought these two bits
    _had_ to be grouped together, at least with the current code.

    What happened to the comment that Joel added to gpl.h:

    +/* Allocation type modifiers, these are required to be adjacent
    + * __GPF_USER: Allocation for user page or a buffer page
    + * __GFP_KERNRCLM: Short-lived or reclaimable kernel allocation
    + * Both bits off: Kernel non-reclaimable or very hard to reclaim
    + * RCLM_SHIFT (defined elsewhere) depends on the location of these bits

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
