KVM: async_pf: do not warn on page allocation failures
In async_pf we try to allocate with NOWAIT to get an element quickly or fail. This code also handle failures gracefully. Lets silence potential page allocation failures under load. qemu-system-s39: page allocation failure: order:0,mode:0x2200000 [...] Call Trace: ([<00000000001146b8>] show_trace+0xf8/0x148) [<000000000011476a>] show_stack+0x62/0xe8 [<00000000004a36b8>] dump_stack+0x70/0x98 [<0000000000272c3a>] warn_alloc_failed+0xd2/0x148 [<000000000027709e>] __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x94e/0xb38 [<00000000002cd36a>] new_slab+0x382/0x400 [<00000000002cf7ac>] ___slab_alloc.constprop.30+0x2dc/0x378 [<00000000002d03d0>] kmem_cache_alloc+0x160/0x1d0 [<0000000000133db4>] kvm_setup_async_pf+0x6c/0x198 [<000000000013dee8>] kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_run+0xd48/0xd58 [<000000000012fcaa>] kvm_vcpu_ioctl+0x372/0x690 [<00000000002f66f6>] do_vfs_ioctl+0x3be/0x510 [<00000000002f68ec>] SyS_ioctl+0xa4/0xb8 [<0000000000781c5e>] system_call+0xd6/0x264 [<000003ffa24fa06a>] 0x3ffa24fa06a Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com> Reviewed-by: Dominik Dingel <dingel@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>
