    treewide: use kv[mz]alloc* rather than opencoded variants · 752ade68
    Michal Hocko authored
    There are many code paths opencoding kvmalloc.  Let's use the helper
    instead.  The main difference to kvmalloc is that those users are
    usually not considering all the aspects of the memory allocator.  E.g.
    allocation requests <= 32kB (with 4kB pages) are basically never failing
    and invoke OOM killer to satisfy the allocation.  This sounds too
    disruptive for something that has a reasonable fallback - the vmalloc.
    On the other hand those requests might fallback to vmalloc even when the
    memory allocator would succeed after several more reclaim/compaction
    attempts previously.  There is no guarantee something like that happens
    This patch converts many of those places to kv[mz]alloc* helpers because
    they are more conservative.
