[PATCH 3/5] mm: create __alloc_bootmem_low_nopanic

From: Jon Mason <jdmason_at_us.ibm.com>
Date: 2006-05-10 09:59:46
Per Andi Kleen's suggestion in the review of our Calgary IOMMU code, I
tried to use the alloc_bootmem_nopanic when allocing bootmem.
Unfortunately, it needs low mem for our translation tables, so we needed
a new function to do this.

I have updated swiotlb to take advantage of this new function in the
patch following this one.

This patch has been tested individually and cumulatively on x86_64 and
cross-compile tested on IA64.  Since I have no IA64 hardware, any
testing on that platform would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon
