journal_get_undo_access is relying on GFP_NOFS allocation yet it is
essential for the journal transaction:

[   83.256914] journal_get_undo_access: No memory for committed data
[   83.258022] EXT3-fs: ext3_free_blocks_sb: aborting transaction: Out
of memory in __ext3_journal_get_undo_access
[   83.259785] EXT3-fs (hdb1): error in ext3_free_blocks_sb: Out of
memory
[   83.267130] Aborting journal on device hdb1.
[   83.292308] EXT3-fs (hdb1): error: ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected
aborted journal
[   83.293630] EXT3-fs (hdb1): error: remounting filesystem read-only

Since "mm: page_alloc: do not lock up GFP_NOFS allocations upon OOM"
these allocation requests are allowed to fail so we need to use
__GFP_NOFAIL to imitate the previous behavior.
