SubjectRe: [PATCH 24/27] Convert gfp_zone() to use a table of precalculated values

Here is such a patch. Boots on my machine and working with that kernel
now. There is a slight gcc problem in that the table is likely repeated
for each compilation unit. Anyone know how to fix that?


Subject: Use a table lookup for gfp_zone and check for errors in flags passed to the page allocator

Use a table to lookup the zone to use given gfp_flags using gfp_zone().

This simplifies the code in gfp_zone() and also keeps the ability of the compiler to
use constant folding to get rid of gfp_zone processing.

One problem with this patch is that we define a static const array in gfp.h. This results
in every compilation unit to reserve its own space for the array. There must be some
trick to get the compiler to allocate this only once. The contents of the array
must be described in the header file otherwise the compiler will not be able to
determine the value of a lookup in the table.
