Subject[PATCH 5.3 294/344] memcg, kmem: do not fail __GFP_NOFAIL charges
Date
From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

commit e55d9d9bfb69405bd7615c0f8d229d8fafb3e9b8 upstream.

Thomas has noticed the following NULL ptr dereference when using cgroup
v1 kmem limit:

Tetsuo then noticed that this is because the __memcg_kmem_charge_memcg
fails __GFP_NOFAIL charge when the kmem limit is reached. This is a wrong
behavior because nofail allocations are not allowed to fail. Normal
charge path simply forces the charge even if that means to cross the
limit. Kmem accounting should be doing the same.
