Subject[PATCH 09/22] Calculate the alloc_flags for allocation only once
Date
Factor out the mapping between GFP and alloc_flags only once. Once factored
out, it only needs to be calculated once but some care must be taken.

[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) {

Without care, this would allow recursion into the allocator via direct
reclaim. This patch ensures we do not recurse when PF_MEMALLOC is set
but TF_MEMDIE callers are now allowed to directly reclaim where they
would have been prevented in the past.
