Subject[PATCH 01/32] mm: gfp_to_alloc_flags()
Clean up the code by factoring out the gfp to alloc_flags mapping.

[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) {

we need to ensure we don't recurse when PF_MEMALLOC is set
