[PATCH 03/10] xfs: fallback to vmalloc for large buffers in xfs_attrmulti_attr_get

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@xxxxxxxxxx>

xfsdump uses for a large buffer for extended attributes, which has a
kmalloc'd shadow buffer in the kernel. This can fail after the
system has been running for some time as it is a high order
allocation. Add a fallback to vmalloc so that it doesn't require
contiguous memory and so won't randomly fail while xfsdump is
running.
