Bug Description

[Impact]
As described in bug 1823753, failures to allocate DMA out of CMA space can result in ~10K cma_alloc() error messages. While non-fatal (the code falls back to allocating memory out of non-CMA space), the error messages themselves can be a problem - esp. for systems w/ slow consoles like the HP m400 (9600 baud). It slows down boot so much that MAAS deploys fail due to timeout.

[Test Case]
Boot the disco kernel on an HP m400 or a HiSilicon D06 w/ the SMMU disabled in the BIOS.

[Fix]
Ratelimit the messages.

[Regression Risk]
Minimal - we're just attempting to quiescing log spew.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1828092

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-disco' to 'verification-done-disco'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-disco' to 'verification-failed-disco'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
