Subject[PATCH 4.14 191/496] btrfs: use kvzalloc to allocate btrfs_fs_info
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com>

[ Upstream commit a8fd1f71749387c9a1053a83ff1c16287499a4e7 ]

The srcu_struct in btrfs_fs_info scales in size with NR_CPUS. On
kernels built with NR_CPUS=8192, this can result in kmalloc failures
that prevent mounting.

There is work in progress to try to resolve this for every user of
srcu_struct but using kvzalloc will work around the failures until
that is complete.

As an example with NR_CPUS=512 on x86_64: the overall size of
subvol_srcu is 3460 bytes, fs_info is 6496.
