mm: page_alloc: hide some GFP internals and document the bits and flag combinations
Andrew stated the following We have quite a history of remote parts of the kernel using weird/wrong/inexplicable combinations of __GFP_ flags. I tend to think that this is because we didn't adequately explain the interface. And I don't think that gfp.h really improved much in this area as a result of this patchset. Could you go through it some time and decide if we've adequately documented all this stuff? This patches first moves some GFP flag combinations that are part of the MM internals to mm/internal.h. The rest of the patch documents the __GFP_FOO bits under various headings and then documents the flag combinations. It will not help callers that are brain damaged but the clarity might motivate some fixes and avoid future mistakes.
