Subject[PATCH 4.7 029/143] usb: devio, do not warn when allocation fails
Date
4.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jiri Slaby <jslaby@suse.cz>

commit 70f7ca9a0262784d0b80727860a63d64ab228e7b upstream.

usbdev_mmap allocates a buffer. The size of the buffer is determined
by a user. So with this code (no need to be root):

int fd = open("/dev/bus/usb/001/001", O_RDONLY);
mmap(NULL, 0x800000, PROT_READ, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);

we can see a warning:

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 21771 at ../mm/page_alloc.c:3563 __alloc_pages_slowpath+0x1036/0x16e0()
...
Call Trace:

...

Allocations like this one should be marked as __GFP_NOWARN. So do so.

The size could be also clipped by something like:
if (size >= (1 << (MAX_ORDER + PAGE_SHIFT - 1)))
return -ENOMEM;
But I think the overall limit of 16M (by usbfs_increase_memory_usage)
is enough, so that we only silence the warning here.
