Subject[PATCH 1/4] memblock: memblock_virt_alloc_internal(): add __GFP_THISNODE flag support
Date
From: Luiz capitulino <lcapitulino@redhat.com>

Currently, if an allocation from the node specified by the nid argument
fails, memblock_virt_alloc_internal() automatically tries to allocate memory
from other nodes.

This is fine if the caller don't care about which node is going to allocate
the memory. However, there are cases where the caller wants memory to be
allocated from the specified node only. If that's not possible, then
memblock_virt_alloc_internal() should just fail.

This commit adds a new flags argument to memblock_virt_alloc_internal()
where the caller can control this behavior. The flags argument is of type
gfp_t, so that we can (re-)use the __GFP_THISNODE definition.
