Hi folks,

These failures are a result of order-4 allocations being done on v5
filesystems to support the large ACL count xattrs. The first patch
puts out usual falbback to vmalloc workaround in place. The second
patch factors all the places we now have this fallback-to-vmalloc
and makes it transparent to the callers.

Cheers,

Dave.

Thanks for clean up. Broken record time: Do we really need order allocation in the filesystem? Esp in xfs_ioctl.c.

--Mark.
