From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Leaving PF_MEMALLOC set when exiting a kthread causes it to remain set
during do_exit().  That can confuse things.  For example, if BSD process
accounting is enabled, then it's possible for do_exit() to end up
calling ext4_write_inode().  That triggers the
WARN_ON_ONCE(current->flags & PF_MEMALLOC) there, as it assumes
(appropriately) that inodes aren't written when allocating memory.

This case was reported by syzbot at
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/0000000000000e7156059f751d7b@google.com.

Fix this in cifs_demultiplex_thread() by using the helper functions to
save and restore PF_MEMALLOC.

Thanks.  FYI, I also sent a similar patch for an XFS kernel thread, and the XFS
folks requested more details in the commit message [1].  So I ended up trying to
reproduce this warning on both XFS and CIFS, and I added more details to both
commit messages.  So if it's not too late, please update the CIFS commit to the
v3 I'm sending out.  Thanks!

Leaving PF_MEMALLOC set when exiting a kthread causes it to remain set
during do_exit().  That can confuse things.  For example, if BSD process
accounting is enabled and the accounting file has FS_SYNC_FL set and is
located on an ext4 filesystem without a journal, then do_exit() can end
up calling ext4_write_inode().  That triggers the
WARN_ON_ONCE(current->flags & PF_MEMALLOC) there, as it assumes
(appropriately) that inodes aren't written when allocating memory.

This was originally reported for another kernel thread, xfsaild() [1].
cifs_demultiplex_thread() also exits with PF_MEMALLOC set, so it's
potentially subject to this same class of issue -- though I haven't been
able to reproduce the WARN_ON_ONCE() via CIFS, since unlike xfsaild(),
cifs_demultiplex_thread() is sent SIGKILL before exiting, and that
interrupts the write to the BSD process accounting file.

Either way, leaving PF_MEMALLOC set is potentially problematic.  Let's
clean this up by properly saving and restoring PF_MEMALLOC.
