Subject[PATCH 4.19 086/321] nvme: provide fallback for discard alloc failure
Date
From: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

[ Upstream commit cb5b7262b011cfb793519bf97e54dff5282da23c ]

When boxes are run near (or to) OOM, we have a problem with the discard
page allocation in nvme. If we fail allocating the special page, we
return busy, and it'll get retried. But since ordering is honored for
dispatch requests, we can keep retrying this same IO and failing. Behind
that IO could be requests that want to free memory, but they never get
the chance.

Allocate a fixed discard page per controller for a safe fallback, and use
that if the initial allocation fails.
