Series [1/3] mm/util: Add kvmalloc_node_caller | expand

Commit Message

Matthew Wilcox May 10, 2021, 3:02 p.m. UTC
Allow the caller of kvmalloc to specify who counts as the allocator
of the memory instead of assuming it's the immediate caller.  Also
reword the kernel-doc for kvmalloc_node() to document the semantics
of the function rather than its implementation.
