Subject[PATCH 1/4] net/skbuff: don't waste memory reserves
Date
In some workloads we have noticed packets being dropped by
sk_filter_trim_cap() because the 'skb' was allocated from pfmemalloc
reserves:

/*
* If the skb was allocated from pfmemalloc reserves, only
* allow SOCK_MEMALLOC sockets to use it as this socket is
* helping free memory
*/
if (skb_pfmemalloc(skb) && !sock_flag(sk, SOCK_MEMALLOC)) {
NET_INC_STATS(sock_net(sk), LINUX_MIB_PFMEMALLOCDROP);
return -ENOMEM;
}

Memalloc sockets are used for stuff like swap over NBD or NFS
and only memalloc sockets can process memalloc skbs. Since we
don't have any memalloc sockets in our setups we shouldn't have
memalloc skbs either. It simply doesn't make any sense to waste
memory reserves on skb which will be dropped anyway.

It appears that __dev_alloc_pages() unconditionally uses
__GFP_MEMALLOC, so unless caller added __GFP_NOMEMALLOC, the
__dev_alloc_pages() may dive into memory reserves.
Later build_skb() or __skb_fill_page_desc() sets skb->pfmemalloc = 1
so this skb always dropped by sk_filter_trim_cap().

Instead of wasting memory reserves we simply shouldn't use them in the
case of absence memalloc sockets in the system. Do this by adding
the __GFP_MEMALLOC only when such socket is present in the system.

Fixes: 0614002bb5f7 ("netvm: propagate page->pfmemalloc from skb_alloc_page to skb")
