page allocator: calculate the alloc_flags for allocation only once



Factor out the mapping between GFP and alloc_flags only once.  Once
factored out, it only needs to be calculated once but some care must be
taken.

[neilb@suse.de says]
As the test:

-       if (((p->flags & PF_MEMALLOC) || unlikely(test_thread_flag(TIF_MEMDIE)))
-                       && !in_interrupt()) {
-               if (!(gfp_mask & __GFP_NOMEMALLOC)) {

has been replaced with a slightly weaker one:

+       if (alloc_flags & ALLOC_NO_WATERMARKS) {

Without care, this would allow recursion into the allocator via direct
reclaim.  This patch ensures we do not recurse when PF_MEMALLOC is set but
TF_MEMDIE callers are now allowed to directly reclaim where they would
have been prevented in the past.
