Subject: [PATCH 06/17] arc: get rid of superfluous __GFP_REPEAT
Date: Mon, 30 May 2016 11:14:48 +0200
Message-ID: <1464599699-30131-7-git-send-email-mhocko@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1464599699-30131-1-git-send-email-mhocko@kernel.org>

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

__GFP_REPEAT has a rather weak semantic but since it has been introduced
around 2.6.12 it has been ignored for low order allocations.

pte_alloc_one_kernel uses __get_order_pte but this is obviously
always zero because BITS_FOR_PTE is not larger than 9 yet the page
size is always larger than 4K.  This means that this flag has never
been actually useful here because it has always been used only for
PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY requests.
