Subject: [PATCH 4.4 07/42] IB/IPoIB: Remove cant use GFP_NOIO warning

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Kamal Heib <>

commit 0b59970e7d96edcb3c7f651d9d48e1a59af3c3b0 upstream.

Remove the warning print of "can't use of GFP_NOIO" to avoid prints in
each QP creation when devices aren't supporting IB_QP_CREATE_USE_GFP_NOIO.

This print become more annoying when the IPoIB interface is configured
to work in connected mode.

Fixes: 09b93088d750 ('IB: Add a QP creation flag to use GFP_NOIO allocations')
