Now I come to look at applying it, I'm not sure whether this change is right.

I don't know if kswapd has anything to do with it.  The check is to see if
we're allowed to block at this point - and wait is just for the completion of
a DIO write to disk.

It would seem like gfpflags_allow_blocking() is the right thing to call - and
that should use current_is_kswapd() if appropriate.
