Using GFP_ATOMIC is not a good idea, because the kernel needs the
GFP_ATOMIC pools for allocation that take place from really atomic
contexts such as interruption handlers for instance. fork should not
be an atomic context.

So the only reason I see why you propose this patch is because you are
in a hurry. Ok, before we fix this properly, you can use GFP_ATOMIC
locally, but please do not make
this an official patch.
