Subject[PATCH] mm/page_alloc: Fix sleeping function called in case of irqsdisable.
From: Zqiang <>

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at mm/page_alloc.c:5179
in_atomic(): 0, irqs_disabled(): 1, non_block: 0, pid: 1, name: swapper/0

If the PAGE_OWNER is enabled, in __set_page_owner(), the pages will be
allocated to save calltrace info, due to the allocated action is executed
under irq disable(pagesets.lock be held), if the gfp variable contains
the flag that causes sleep, will trigger above information. the
prep_new_page() is not need to disable irq for protection, fix it through
enable irq before call prep_new_page().
