Subject[ 44/48] mm, show_mem: suppress page counts in non-blockable contexts
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>

commit 4b59e6c4730978679b414a8da61514a2518da512 upstream.

On large systems with a lot of memory, walking all RAM to determine page
types may take a half second or even more.

In non-blockable contexts, the page allocator will emit a page allocation
failure warning unless __GFP_NOWARN is specified. In such contexts, irqs
are typically disabled and such a lengthy delay may even result in NMI
watchdog timeouts.

To fix this, suppress the page walk in such contexts when printing the
page allocation failure warning.
