Subject[PATCH 4.19 054/187] scsi: core: replace GFP_ATOMIC with GFP_KERNEL in scsi_scan.c
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 1749ef00f7312679f76d5e9104c5d1e22a829038 ]

We had a test-report where, under memory pressure, adding LUNs to the
systems would fail (the tests add LUNs strictly in sequence):

[ 5526.587439] scsi_alloc_sdev: Allocation failure during SCSI scanning, some SCSI devices might not be configured
[ 5526.588562] scsi_alloc_sdev: Allocation failure during SCSI scanning, some SCSI devices might not be configured

Looking at the code of scsi_alloc_sdev(), and all the calling contexts,
there seems to be no reason to use GFP_ATMOIC here. All the different
call-contexts use a mutex at some point, and nothing in between that
requires no sleeping, as far as I could see. Additionally, the code that
later allocates the block queue for the device (scsi_mq_alloc_queue())
already uses GFP_KERNEL.

There are similar allocations in two other functions:
scsi_probe_and_add_lun(), and scsi_add_lun(),; that can also be done with
GFP_KERNEL.

Here is the contexts for the three functions so far:

scsi_alloc_sdev()
scsi_probe_and_add_lun()
scsi_sequential_lun_scan()
__scsi_scan_target()
scsi_scan_target()
mutex_lock()
scsi_scan_channel()
scsi_scan_host_selected()
mutex_lock()
scsi_report_lun_scan()
__scsi_scan_target()
...
__scsi_add_device()
mutex_lock()
__scsi_scan_target()
...
scsi_report_lun_scan()
...
scsi_get_host_dev()
mutex_lock()

scsi_probe_and_add_lun()
...

scsi_add_lun()
scsi_probe_and_add_lun()
...

So replace all these, and give them a bit of a better chance to succeed,
with more chances of reclaim.
