From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Using kmalloc with the vmalloc fallback for larger allocations is a
common pattern in the kernel code. Yet we do not have any common helper
for that and so users have invented their own helpers. Some of them are
really creative when doing so. Let's just add kv[mz]alloc and make sure
it is implemented properly. This implementation makes sure to not make
a large memory pressure for > PAGE_SZE requests (__GFP_NORETRY) and also
to not warn about allocation failures. This also rules out the OOM
killer as the vmalloc is a more approapriate fallback than a disruptive
user visible action.

This patch also changes some existing users and removes helpers which
are specific for them. In some cases this is not possible (e.g.
ext4_kvmalloc, libcfs_kvzalloc, __aa_kvmalloc) because those seems to be
broken and require GFP_NO{FS,IO} context which is not vmalloc compatible
in general (note that the page table allocation is GFP_KERNEL). Those
need to be fixed separately.

apparmor has already claimed kv[mz]alloc so remove those and use
__aa_kvmalloc instead to prevent from the naming clashes.

Changes since v1
- define __vmalloc_node_flags for CONFIG_MMU=n

Hi,
I've sent this as an RFC [1] and there were no major objections. There
is a follow up work to be done, namely check the current users of
GPF_NOFS vmalloc fallback users but that needs to be done separately.  I
strongly suggest not pulling any nofs logic into vmalloc directly but
that is a separate topic that is not directly related to this patch. The
chosen approach is triggering a warning when GFP_KERNEL incompatible flags
are used for kv[zm]alloc* function for easier debugging.

Can we have this merged?

I have no real objection but perhaps this would
be better done as 3 or more patches

o rename apparmor uses
o introduce generic
o conversions to generic

Whatever maintainers of the respective code prefer. I usually prefer to
have newly introduced functions along with their users so that it is
clear how they are used. The patch doesn't seem to be too large
either...

Wouldn't a _ONCE be sufficient? It's unlikely that multiple wrong call sites 
appear out of the blue, but we don't want to flood the log from a single 
frequently called site. No strong feelings though.

This should be size <= PAGE_SIZE.

Fair enough, I will make it WARN_ON_ONCE. I wish WARN_ON_ONCE would be
more clever, though. We can lose information about different call sites.
I was thinking about how to deal with it and I stackdepot sounds like it
could help here. But this is off-topic...

Hi, I just noticed that this had __GFP_REPEAT, so you'll probably want
to move these hunks to patch 3 with the rest of vhost.
