Subject: [PATCH 06/29] mm: __GFP_EMERGENCY
Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2007 15:43:10 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070221144842.108927000@taijtu.programming.kicks-ass.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070221144304.512721000@taijtu.programming.kicks-ass.net>

[-- Attachment #1: mm-page_alloc-GFP_EMERGENCY.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 3698 bytes --]

__GFP_EMERGENCY will allow the allocation to disregard the watermarks, 
much like PF_MEMALLOC.
