Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] memcg, oom: no oom-kill for __GFP_RETRY_MAYFAIL
From
The documentation of __GFP_RETRY_MAYFAIL clearly mentioned that the
OOM killer will not be triggered and indeed the page alloc does not
invoke OOM killer for such allocations. However we do trigger memcg
OOM killer for __GFP_RETRY_MAYFAIL. Fix that. This flag will used later
to not trigger oom-killer in the charging path for fanotify and inotify
event allocations.
