    Subject[PATCH 26/49] memblock: Make memblock_alloc_try_nid() fallback to MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ANYWHERE
    From: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <>

    memblock_alloc_nid() used to fallback to allocating anywhere by using
    memblock_alloc() as a fallback.

    However, some of my previous patches limit memblock_alloc() to the region
    covered by MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ACCESSIBLE which is not quite what we want
    for memblock_alloc_try_nid().

    So we fix it by explicitely using MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ANYWHERE.

    Not that so far only sparc uses memblock_alloc_nid() and it hasn't been updated
    to clamp the accessible zone yet. Thus the temporary "breakage" should have
    no effect.
