Subject: [PATCH 7/9] net: use kvmalloc with __GFP_REPEAT rather than open coded variant
Date: Mon,  6 Mar 2017 11:33:25 +0100
Message-ID: <20170306103327.2766-3-mhocko@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170306103327.2766-1-mhocko@kernel.org>

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

fq_alloc_node, alloc_netdev_mqs and netif_alloc* open code kmalloc
with vmalloc fallback. Use the kvmalloc variant instead. Keep the
__GFP_REPEAT flag based on explanation from Eric:
"
At the time, tests on the hardware I had in my labs showed that
vmalloc() could deliver pages spread all over the memory and that was a
small penalty (once memory is fragmented enough, not at boot time)
"

The way how the code is constructed means, however, that we prefer to go
and hit the OOM killer before we fall back to the vmalloc for requests
<=32kB (with 4kB pages) in the current code. This is rather disruptive for
something that can be achived with the fallback. On the other hand
__GFP_REPEAT doesn't have any useful semantic for these requests. So the
effect of this patch is that requests smaller than 64kB will fallback to
vmalloc easier now.
