Since scrub workers only do memory allocation with GFP_KERNEL when they
need to perform repair, we can move the recent setup of the nofs context
up to scrub_handle_errored_block() instead of setting it up down the call
chain at insert_full_stripe_lock() and scrub_add_page_to_wr_bio(),
removing some duplicate code and comment. So the only paths for which a
scrub worker can do memory allocations using GFP_KERNEL are the following:

 scrub_bio_end_io_worker()
   scrub_block_complete()
     scrub_handle_errored_block()
       lock_full_stripe()
         insert_full_stripe_lock()
           -> kmalloc with GFP_KERNEL

  scrub_bio_end_io_worker()
    scrub_block_complete()
      scrub_handle_errored_block()
        scrub_write_page_to_dev_replace()
          scrub_add_page_to_wr_bio()
            -> kzalloc with GFP_KERNEL

Added to misc-next, thanks.

Though I don't see a technical reason for placing the restore after
unlock_full_stripe (no GFP_KERNEL allocations there and not in the
preceding block that does only kfree) it looks better to keep the proper
nesting of memalloc save/lock/unlock/memalloc restore. So agreed, just
that it's a new pattern I think it's good to spell it out.
