mm: break out page allocation warning code
Dave Hansen [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:16 +0000 (17:12 -0700)]
This originally started as a simple patch to give vmalloc() some more
verbose output on failure on top of the plain page allocator messages.
Johannes suggested that it might be nicer to lead with the vmalloc() info
_before_ the page allocator messages.

But, I do think there's a lot of value in what __alloc_pages_slowpath()
does with its filtering and so forth.

This patch creates a new function which other allocators can call instead
of relying on the internal page allocator warnings.  It also gives this
function private rate-limiting which separates it from other
printk_ratelimit() users.
