Linux supports allocating memory in interrupt context.  We also support
allocating memory while holding locks.

Doing it any other way would require the network stack to preallocate
all of the memory it's going to use.  You can pop over to the netdev
mailing list and ask them to stop this behaviour, but I don't think
they'll be very sympathetic.
