    When running ltp's oom test with kmemleak enabled, the below warning was
    triggerred since kernel detects __GFP_NOFAIL & ~__GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM is
    passed in:
      WARNING: CPU: 105 PID: 2138 at mm/page_alloc.c:4608 __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x1c31/0x1d50

    The mempool_alloc_slab() clears __GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM, however kmemleak
    has __GFP_NOFAIL set all the time due to d9570ee3 ("kmemleak:
    allow to coexist with fault injection").  But, it doesn't make any sense
    to have __GFP_NOFAIL and ~__GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM specified at the same
    According to the discussion on the mailing list, the commit should be
    reverted for short term solution.  Catalin Marinas would follow up with
    a better solution for longer term.
    The failure rate of kmemleak metadata allocation may increase in some
    circumstances, but this should be expected side effect.
