Subject[PATCH 5.4 030/320] mm/page_alloc.c: do not warn allocation failure on zone DMA if no managed pages
Date
From: Baoquan He <bhe@redhat.com>

commit c4dc63f0032c77464fbd4e7a6afc22fa6913c4a7 upstream.

In kdump kernel of x86_64, page allocation failure is observed:

kworker/u2:2: page allocation failure: order:0, mode:0xcc1(GFP_KERNEL|GFP_DMA), nodemask=(null),cpuset=/,mems_allowed=0
CPU: 0 PID: 55 Comm: kworker/u2:2 Not tainted 5.16.0-rc4+ #5
Hardware name: AMD Dinar/Dinar, BIOS RDN1505B 06/05/2013
Workqueue: events_unbound async_run_entry_fn

The above failure happened when calling kmalloc() to allocate buffer with
GFP_DMA. It requests to allocate slab page from DMA zone while no managed
pages at all in there.

sr_probe()
--> get_capabilities()
--> buffer = kmalloc(512, GFP_KERNEL | GFP_DMA);

Because in the current kernel, dma-kmalloc will be created as long as
CONFIG_ZONE_DMA is enabled. However, kdump kernel of x86_64 doesn't have
managed pages on DMA zone since commit 6f599d84231f ("x86/kdump: Always
reserve the low 1M when the crashkernel option is specified"). The
failure can be always reproduced.

For now, let's mute the warning of allocation failure if requesting pages
from DMA zone while no managed pages.
