Subject: [PATCH] Revert "mm, mempool: only set __GFP_NOMEMALLOC if there are
free elements"

This reverts commit f9054c70d28bc214b2857cf8db8269f4f45a5e23.

I've noticed that Andrew has already picked this one up. Is anybody
against marking it for stable?

It would be strange to have different behavior with known regression in 4.6 and 4.7 stables. Actually, there's still time for 4.7 proper?
