Subject: [RFC PATCH 8/8] fscrypt: stop pretending that key setup is nofs-safe

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@...gle.com>

fscrypt_get_encryption_info() has never actually been safe to call in a
context that needs GFP_NOFS, since it calls crypto_alloc_skcipher().

crypto_alloc_skcipher() isn't GFP_NOFS-safe, even if called under
memalloc_nofs_save().  This is because it may load kernel modules, and
also because it internally takes crypto_alg_sem.  Other tasks can do
GFP_KERNEL allocations while holding crypto_alg_sem for write.

The use of fscrypt_init_mutex isn't GFP_NOFS-safe either.

So, stop pretending that fscrypt_get_encryption_info() is nofs-safe.
I.e., when it allocates memory, just use GFP_KERNEL instead of GFP_NOFS.

Note, another reason to do this is that GFP_NOFS is deprecated in favor
of using memalloc_nofs_save() in the proper places.
