fork: Move thread info gfp flags to header
Thomas Gleixner [Sat, 5 May 2012 15:05:41 +0000 (15:05 +0000)]
These flags can be useful for extra allocations outside of the core
code.

Add __GFP_NOTRACK to them, so the archs which have kmemcheck do
not have to provide extra allocators just for that reason.
