Subject[RFC 10/17] drm/amdgpu: s/GFP_KERNEL/GFP_ATOMIC in scheduler code
My dma-fence lockdep annotations caught an inversion because we
allocate memory where we really shouldn't:

amdgpu_fence_emit+0x30/0x330 [amdgpu]
amdgpu_ib_schedule+0x306/0x550 [amdgpu]
amdgpu_job_run+0x10f/0x260 [amdgpu]
drm_sched_main+0x1b9/0x490 [gpu_sched]

Trouble right now is that lockdep only validates against GFP_FS, which
would be good enough for shrinkers. But for mmu_notifiers we actually
need !GFP_ATOMIC, since they can be called from any page laundering,
even if GFP_NOFS or GFP_NOIO are set.

I guess we should improve the lockdep annotations for

Ofc real fix is to properly preallocate this fence and stuff it into
the amdgpu job structure. But GFP_ATOMIC gets the lockdep splat out of
the way.

v2: Two more allocations in scheduler paths.

Frist one:

amdgpu_vmid_grab+0x100/0xca0 [amdgpu]
amdgpu_job_dependency+0xf9/0x120 [amdgpu]
drm_sched_entity_pop_job+0x3f/0x440 [gpu_sched]
drm_sched_main+0xf9/0x490 [gpu_sched]

Second one:

amdgpu_sync_fence+0x7e/0x110 [amdgpu]
amdgpu_vmid_grab+0x86b/0xca0 [amdgpu]
amdgpu_job_dependency+0xf9/0x120 [amdgpu]
drm_sched_entity_pop_job+0x3f/0x440 [gpu_sched]
drm_sched_main+0xf9/0x490 [gpu_sched]
