From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

kmem_zalloc_large and _xfs_buf_map_pages use memalloc_noio_{save,restore}
API to prevent from reclaim recursion into the fs because vmalloc can
invoke unconditional GFP_KERNEL allocations and these functions might be
called from the NOFS contexts. The memalloc_noio_save will enforce
GFP_NOIO context which is even weaker than GFP_NOFS and that seems to be
unnecessary. Let's use memalloc_nofs_{save,restore} instead as it should
provide exactly what we need here - implicit GFP_NOFS context.

Changes since v1
- s@memalloc_noio_restore@memalloc_nofs_restore@ in _xfs_buf_map_pages
  as per Brian Foster
