Subject[PATCH 0/3 v3] ARM/ARM64: silence large module first time allocation
Date
With kernels built with CONFIG_ARM{,64}_MODULES_PLTS=y, the first allocation
done from module space will fail, produce a general OOM allocation and also a
vmap warning. The second allocation from vmalloc space may or may not be
successful, but is actually the one we are interested about in these cases.

This patch series passed __GFP_NOWARN to silence such allocations from the
ARM/ARM64 module loader's first time allocation when the MODULES_PLT option is
enabled, and also makes alloc_vmap_area() react to the caller setting
__GFP_NOWARN to silence "vmap allocation for size..." messages.


Changes in v3:
- check for __GFP_NOWARN not set where the check for printk_ratelimited()
is done, add Michal's Acked-by

- use C conditionals and not CPP conditionals for IS_ENABLED(), add Ard's
Reviewed-by tag

Changes in v2:

- check __GFP_NOWARN out of the printk_ratelimited() check (Michal)

Here is an example of what we would get without these two patches, pretty
scary huh?
