memcg: revert gfp mask fix
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 8 Jan 2009 02:08:10 +0000 (18:08 -0800)]
My patch, memcg-fix-gfp_mask-of-callers-of-charge.patch changed gfp_mask
of callers of charge to be GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE for showing what will
happen at memory reclaim.

But in recent discussion, it's NACKed because it sounds ugly.

This patch is for reverting it and add some clean up to gfp_mask of
callers of charge.  No behavior change but need review before generating
HUNK in deep queue.

This patch also adds explanation to meaning of gfp_mask passed to charge
functions in memcontrol.h.
