The OOM killing invocation does a lot of duplicative checks against
the task's allocation context.  Rework it to take advantage of the
existing checks in the allocator slowpath.

The OOM killer is invoked when the allocator is unable to reclaim any
pages but the allocation has to keep looping.  Instead of having a
check for __GFP_NORETRY hidden in oom_gfp_allowed(), just move the OOM
invocation to the true branch of should_alloc_retry().  The __GFP_FS
check from oom_gfp_allowed() can then be moved into the OOM avoidance
branch in __alloc_pages_may_oom(), along with the PF_DUMPCORE test.

__alloc_pages_may_oom() can then signal to the caller whether the OOM
killer was invoked, instead of requiring it to duplicate the order and
high_zoneidx checks to guess this when deciding whether to continue.
