ipc: drop non-RCU allocation
The only users of ipc_alloc() were ipc_rcu_alloc() and the on-heap sem_io fall-back memory. Better to just open-code these to make things easier to read. [manfred@colorfullife.com: Rediff due to inclusion of memset() into ipc_rcu_alloc()] Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20170525185107.12869-5-manfred@colorfullife.com Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Signed-off-by: Manfred Spraul <manfred@colorfullife.com> Cc: Davidlohr Bueso <dave@stgolabs.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
