This is not great, sort of from an overall design point of view, even though
it makes the rest of the patch work. See below for other ideas, that will
avoid the need for this sort of odd point fix.

Another odd thing: this used to check for memory failure and just give
up, and now it doesn't. Yes, I realize that it all still works at the
moment, but this is quirky and we shouldn't stop here.

Instead, a cleaner approach would be to push the memory allocation
slightly higher up the call stack, out to the
pci_p2pdma_distance_many(). So pci_p2pdma_distance_many() should make
the kmalloc() call, and fail out if it can't get a page for the seq_buf
buffer. Then you don't have to do all this odd stuff.

Furthermore, the call sites can then decide for themselves which GFP
flags, GFP_ATOMIC or GFP_KERNEL or whatever they want for kmalloc().

A related thing: this whole exercise would go better if there were a
preparatory patch or two that changed the return codes in this file to
something less crazy. There are too many functions that can fail, but
are treated as if they sort-of-mostly-would-never-fail, in the hopes of
using the return value directly for counting and such. This is badly
mistaken, and it leads developers to try to avoid returning -ENOMEM
(which is what we need here).

Really, these functions should all be doing "0 for success, -ERRNO for
failure, and pass other values, including results, in the arg list".
