Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.2 54/59] Revert "kmemleak: allow to coexist with fault injection"
Date
From: Yang Shi <yang.shi@linux.alibaba.com>

[ Upstream commit df9576def004d2cd5beedc00cb6e8901427634b9 ]

When running ltp's oom test with kmemleak enabled, the below warning was
triggerred since kernel detects __GFP_NOFAIL & ~__GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM is
passed in:

WARNING: CPU: 105 PID: 2138 at mm/page_alloc.c:4608 __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x1c31/0x1d50

Hardware name: QEMU Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996), BIOS rel-1.10.2-0-g5f4c7b1-prebuilt.qemu-project.org 04/01/2014

The mempool_alloc_slab() clears __GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM, however kmemleak
has __GFP_NOFAIL set all the time due to d9570ee3bd1d4f2 ("kmemleak:
allow to coexist with fault injection"). But, it doesn't make any sense
to have __GFP_NOFAIL and ~__GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM specified at the same
time.

According to the discussion on the mailing list, the commit should be
reverted for short term solution. Catalin Marinas would follow up with
a better solution for longer term.

The failure rate of kmemleak metadata allocation may increase in some
circumstances, but this should be expected side effect.
