Subject[patch for-4.20] Revert "mm, thp: consolidate THP gfp handling into alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask"
This reverts commit 89c83fb539f95491be80cdd5158e6f0ce329e317.

There are a couple of issues with 89c83fb539f9 independent of its partial
revert in 2f0799a0ffc0 ("mm, thp: restore node-local hugepage
allocations"):

Firstly, the interaction between alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask() and
alloc_pages_vma() is racy wrt __GFP_THISNODE and MPOL_BIND.
alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask() makes sure not to set __GFP_THISNODE for
an MPOL_BIND policy but the policy used in alloc_pages_vma() may not be
the same for shared vma policies, triggering the WARN_ON_ONCE() in
policy_node().

Secondly, prior to 89c83fb539f9, alloc_pages_vma() implemented a somewhat
different policy for hugepage allocations, which were allocated through
alloc_hugepage_vma(). For hugepage allocations, if the allocating
process's node is in the set of allowed nodes, allocate with
__GFP_THISNODE for that node (for MPOL_PREFERRED, use that node with
__GFP_THISNODE instead). This was changed for shmem_alloc_hugepage() to
allow fallback to other nodes in 89c83fb539f9 as it did for new_page() in
mm/mempolicy.c which is functionally different behavior and removes the
requirement to only allocate hugepages locally.

The latter should have been reverted as part of 2f0799a0ffc0 as well.

Fully revert 89c83fb539f9 so that hugepage allocation policy is fully
restored and there is no race between alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask() and
alloc_pages_vma().

Fixes: 89c83fb539f9 ("mm, thp: consolidate THP gfp handling into alloc_hugepage_direct_gfpmask")
Fixes: 2f0799a0ffc0 ("mm, thp: restore node-local hugepage allocations")
