    1) Remove GFP_BUFFER and HIGHMEM related deadlocks, by letting
    these allocations fail instead of looping forever in
    __alloc_pages() when they cannot make any progress there.

    It's the changes to __alloc_pages(), where we don't loop forever
    but fail the allocation.

    Virtual memory is like a game you can't win;
    However, without VM there's truly nothing to lose...
