From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

now that we have memalloc_nofs_{save,restore} api we can mark the whole
transaction context as implicitly GFP_NOFS. All allocations will
automatically inherit GFP_NOFS this way. This means that we do not have
to mark any of those requests with GFP_NOFS and moreover all the
ext4_kv[mz]alloc(GFP_NOFS) are also safe now because even the hardcoded
GFP_KERNEL allocations deep inside the vmalloc will be NOFS now.
