* __GFP_RECLAIM is shorthand to allow/forbid both direct and kswapd reclaim.
*
- * __GFP_REPEAT: Try hard to allocate the memory, but the allocation attempt
- * _might_ fail. This depends upon the particular VM implementation.
+ * The default allocator behavior depends on the request size. We have a concept
+ * of so called costly allocations (with order > PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER).
+ * !costly allocations are too essential to fail so they are implicitly
+ * non-failing by default (with some exceptions like OOM victims might fail so
+ * the caller still has to check for failures) while costly requests try to be
+ * not disruptive and back off even without invoking the OOM killer.
+ * The following three modifiers might be used to override some of these
+ * implicit rules
+ *
+ * __GFP_NORETRY: The VM implementation will try only very lightweight
+ * memory direct reclaim to get some memory under memory pressure (thus
+ * it can sleep). It will avoid disruptive actions like OOM killer. The
+ * caller must handle the failure which is quite likely to happen under
+ * heavy memory pressure. The flag is suitable when failure can easily be
+ * handled at small cost, such as reduced throughput
+ *
+ * __GFP_RETRY_MAYFAIL: The VM implementation will retry memory reclaim
+ * procedures that have previously failed if there is some indication
+ * that progress has been made else where. It can wait for other
+ * tasks to attempt high level approaches to freeing memory such as
+ * compaction (which removes fragmentation) and page-out.
+ * There is still a definite limit to the number of retries, but it is
+ * a larger limit than with __GFP_NORETRY.
+ * Allocations with this flag may fail, but only when there is
+ * genuinely little unused memory. While these allocations do not
+ * directly trigger the OOM killer, their failure indicates that
+ * the system is likely to need to use the OOM killer soon. The
+ * caller must handle failure, but can reasonably do so by failing
+ * a higher-level request, or completing it only in a much less
+ * efficient manner.
+ * If the allocation does fail, and the caller is in a position to
+ * free some non-essential memory, doing so could benefit the system
+ * as a whole.
*
* __GFP_NOFAIL: The VM implementation _must_ retry infinitely: the caller
- * cannot handle allocation failures. New users should be evaluated carefully
- * (and the flag should be used only when there is no reasonable failure
- * policy) but it is definitely preferable to use the flag rather than
- * opencode endless loop around allocator.
- *
- * __GFP_NORETRY: The VM implementation must not retry indefinitely and will
- * return NULL when direct reclaim and memory compaction have failed to allow
- * the allocation to succeed. The OOM killer is not called with the current
- * implementation.
+ * cannot handle allocation failures. The allocation could block
+ * indefinitely but will never return with failure. Testing for
+ * failure is pointless.
+ * New users should be evaluated carefully (and the flag should be
+ * used only when there is no reasonable failure policy) but it is
+ * definitely preferable to use the flag rather than opencode endless
+ * loop around allocator.
+ * Using this flag for costly allocations is _highly_ discouraged.
