Commit Message

Daniel Vetter May 21, 2019, 2:47 p.m. UTC
In some special cases we must not block, but there's not a
spinlock, preempt-off, irqs-off or similar critical section already
that arms the might_sleep() debug checks. Add a non_block_start/end()
pair to annotate these.

This will be used in the oom paths of mmu-notifiers, where blocking is
not allowed to make sure there's forward progress. Quoting Michal:

"The notifier is called from quite a restricted context - oom_reaper -
which shouldn't depend on any locks or sleepable conditionals. The code
should be swift as well but we mostly do care about it to make a forward
progress. Checking for sleepable context is the best thing we could come
up with that would describe these demands at least partially."

Peter also asked whether we want to catch spinlocks on top, but Michal
said those are less of a problem because spinlocks can't have an
indirect dependency upon the page allocator and hence close the loop
with the oom reaper.

Suggested by Michal Hocko.

v2:
- Improve commit message (Michal)
- Also check in schedule, not just might_sleep (Peter)

v3: It works better when I actually squash in the fixup I had lying
around :-/
