Subject[PATCH 03/62] radix tree test suite: Check reclaim bit
From: Matthew Wilcox <>

In order to test the memory allocation failure paths, the radix tree
test suite fails allocations if __GFP_NOWARN is set. That happens to work
for the radix tree implementation, but the semantics we really want are
that we want to fail allocations which are not GFP_KERNEL. Do this
by failing allocations which don't have the DIRECT_RECLAIM bit set.
