Extracted from slab.h, which seems to have the most complete version
including the correct might_sleep() check. Roll it out to slob.c.

Motivated by a discussion with Paul about possibly changing call_rcu
behaviour to allocate memory, but only roughly every 500th call.

There are a lot fewer places in the kernel that care about whether
allocating memory is allowed or not (due to deadlocks with reclaim
code) than places that care whether sleeping is allowed. But debugging
these also tends to be a lot harder, so nice descriptive checks could
come in handy. I might have some use eventually for annotations in
drivers/gpu.

Note that unlike fs_reclaim_acquire/release gfpflags_allow_blocking
does not consult the PF_MEMALLOC flags. But there is no flag
equivalent for GFP_NOWAIT, hence this check can't go wrong due to
memalloc_no*_save/restore contexts.

I have a patch series that adds memalloc_nowait_save/restore.

tbh this was a typoed git send-email, but thanks for the heads-up,
I'll adjust the patch accordingly.

Cheers, Daniel

On 2nd thought I think your patch should update
gfpflags_allow_blocking to take into account the new ->memalloc_nowait
flag you're adding. I'll comment over there in that thread.
