    [NET]: Handle disabled preemption in gfp_any()
    ctnetlink uses netlink_unicast from an atomic_notifier_chain
    (which is called within a RCU read side critical section)
    without holding further locks. netlink_unicast calls netlink_trim
    with the result of gfp_any() for the gfp flags, which are passed
    down to pskb_expand_header. gfp_any() only checks for softirq
    context and returns GFP_KERNEL, resulting in this warning:
    BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at mm/slab.c:3032
    in_atomic():1, irqs_disabled():0
    no locks held by rmmod/7010.
    Call Trace:

    Since netlink_unicast is supposed to be callable from within RCU
    read side critical sections, make gfp_any() check for in_atomic()
    instead of in_softirq().
    Additionally nfnetlink_send needs to use gfp_any() as well for the
    call to netlink_broadcast).
