xfs: I/O completion handlers must use NOFS allocations
When completing I/O requests we must not allow the memory allocator to recurse into the filesystem, as we might deadlock on waiting for the I/O completion otherwise. The only thing currently allocating normal GFP_KERNEL memory is the allocation of the transaction structure for the unwritten extent conversion. Add a memflags argument to _xfs_trans_alloc to allow controlling the allocator behaviour.
