Add missing M_NOWAIT flag

Authored by rstone on Oct 23 2019, 4:21 PM.



The LinuxKPI linux_dma code calls PCTRIE_INSERT with a
mutex held, but does not set M_NOWAIT when allocating
nodes, leading to a potential panic. All of this code
can handle an allocation failure here, so prefer an
allocation failure to sleeping on memory.

Also fix a related case where NOWAIT/WAITOK was not
specified. In this case it's not clear whether sleeping
is allowed so be conservative and assume not. There are
a lot of other paths in this code that can fail due to
a lack of memory anyway.

Event Timeline

This looks correct.
I agree with the IRC comment about a kassert in uma_zalloc for the flags, but that's not needed here.
