block: memory allocations in bounce_clone_bio must not fail
The caller can't cope with a failure from bounce_clone_bio, so use __GFP_NOFAIL for the passthrough case. bio_alloc_bioset already won't fail due to the use of mempools. And yes, we need to get rid of this bock layer bouncing code entirely sooner or later.. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
