So a few things here:

default_alloc_limit: This should be a patch of its own I believe, we
should provide a way for callers to also honor the limit, I'm sure
without that we're going to hit funny problems -especially- if we start
replacing bootmem. (Heh, low/high mem anyone ?)

I would think that the basic lmb_alloc() should be modified to use the
current limit, and maybe add an lmb_alloc_anywhere() as an inline
wrapper to lmb_alloc_base(..., LMB_ALLOC_ANYWHERE); In fact, lmb_alloc()
should become an inline wrapper too.

Also, the way you added the calls to __check_and_double_region_array()
is fishy (what a function name btw !). IE. You added it in 2 or 3
places, missing a whole bunch, which will guarantee some kind of
unexpected behaviour especially when using the _nid variants.

Now, maybe the idea of moving things to -after- the call wasn't that
good. I still don't quite get why we can't do things lazily, especially
if we remove some of the code duplication in there.

In any case, its about time to clarify what is API and what is internal
in LMB and clean up the entry path.

Cheers,
Ben.
