Subject[PATCH 03/16] mm: Introduce __GFP_MEMALLOC to allow access to emergency reserves
Date
__GFP_MEMALLOC will allow the allocation to disregard the watermarks,
much like PF_MEMALLOC. It allows one to pass along the memalloc state
in object related allocation flags as opposed to task related flags,
such as sk->sk_allocation. This removes the need for ALLOC_PFMEMALLOC
as callers using __GFP_MEMALLOC can get the ALLOC_NO_WATERMARK flag
which is now enough to identify allocations related to page reclaim.
