[PATCH 09/14] netvm: Propagate page->pfmemalloc to skb

From: Mel Gorman
Date: Thu Oct 06 2011 - 08:44:13 EST

The skb->pfmemalloc flag gets set to true iff during the slab
allocation of data in __alloc_skb that the the PFMEMALLOC reserves
were used. If the packet is fragmented, it is possible that pages
will be allocated from the PFMEMALLOC reserve without propagating
this information to the skb. This patch propagates page->pfmemalloc
from pages allocated for fragments to the skb.
