Slab allocators: Replace explicit zeroing with __GFP_ZERO
kmalloc_node() and kmem_cache_alloc_node() were not available in a zeroing variant in the past. But with __GFP_ZERO it is possible now to do zeroing while allocating. Use __GFP_ZERO to remove the explicit clearing of memory via memset whereever we can. Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
