Subject: [PATCH v2 5/8] mm: apply per-task gfp constraints in fast path

Function current_gfp_context() is called after fast path. However, soon we
will add more constraints which will also limit zones based on context.
Move this call into fast path, and apply the correct constraints for all
allocations.

Also update .reclaim_idx based on value returned by current_gfp_context()
because it soon will modify the allowed zones.

Note:
With this patch we will do one extra current->flags load during fast path,
but we already load current->flags in fast-path:

__alloc_pages_nodemask()
 prepare_alloc_pages()
  current_alloc_flags(gfp_mask, *alloc_flags);

Later, when we add the zone constrain logic to current_gfp_context() we
will be able to remove current->flags load from current_alloc_flags, and
therefore return fast-path to the current performance level.
