hso_create_device() is never called in atomic context.

The call chains ending up at hso_create_device() are:
[1] hso_create_device() <- hso_create_bulk_serial_device() <- hso_probe()
[2] hso_create_device() <- hso_create_mux_serial_device() <- hso_probe()
[3] hso_create_device() <- hso_create_net_device() <- hso_probe()
hso_probe() is set as ".probe" in struct usb_driver, 
so it is not called in atomic context.

Despite never getting called from atomic context,
hso_create_device() calls kzalloc() with GFP_ATOMIC,
which does not sleep for allocation.
GFP_ATOMIC is not necessary and can be replaced with GFP_KERNEL,
which can sleep and improve the possibility of sucessful allocation.

This is found by a static analysis tool named DCNS written by myself.
And I also manually check it.
