Subject[PATCH 3.16 070/134] NFS: Use GFP_NOIO for two allocations in writeback
3.16.47-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Benjamin Coddington <bcodding@redhat.com>

commit ae97aa524ef495b6276fd26f5d5449fb22975d7c upstream.

Prevent a deadlock that can occur if we wait on allocations
that try to write back our pages.

Signed-off-by: Benjamin Coddington <bcodding@redhat.com>
Fixes: 00bfa30abe869 ("NFS: Create a common pgio_alloc and pgio_release...")
Signed-off-by: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@primarydata.com>
[bwh: Backported to 3.16:
- Drop changes in nfs_pageio_init()
- Adjust context]
