I'd never seen this kind of gfp masking before, so I did a grep around
and the only cases I saw of this kind of usage were for things like
GFP_DMA and such.
I could not find one case that did it to convert a sleeping into a non-
sleeping GFP mask.
Let's not over-engineer this. For one thing, whatever allocation bits
came down from the callers, we are going to lose here.
So just pass straight GFP_ATOMIC into the routines below here instead
of the 'gfp' variable.
