Subject[PATCH 5/6] XFS: remove congestion_wait() loop from kmem_alloc()
Documentation commment in gfp.h discourages indefinite retry loops on
ENOMEM and says of __GFP_NOFAIL that it

is definitely preferable to use the flag rather than opencode
endless loop around allocator.

So remove the loop, instead specifying __GFP_NOFAIL if KM_MAYFAIL was
not given.
