Hi

I suggest to join memalloc_noio and memalloc_nofs into just one flag that 
prevents both filesystem recursion and i/o recursion.

Note that any I/O can recurse into a filesystem via the loop device, thus 
it doesn't make much sense to have a context where PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS is set 
and PF_MEMALLOC_NOIO is not set.
