[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-kcopyd: alloc pages from the main page allocator



dm-kcopyd: alloc pages from the main page allocator.

This patch changes dm-kcopyd so that it allocates pages with page
allocator with __GFP_NOWARN | __GFP_NORETRY flags (so that it can fail
in case of memory pressure). If the allocation fails, dm-kcopyd
allocates pages from its own reserve.
