[PATCH] staging: emxx_udc: Replace GFP_KERNEL with GFP_ATOMIC

From: Tapasweni Pathak
Date: Fri Feb 20 2015 - 08:14:05 EST

To avoid deadlock, do not call blocking functions with spinlocks held.

Replace GFP_KERNEL with GFP_ATOMIC, as the latter will fail if the pile
doesn't have enough free pages but will not sleep and hence deadlock can
be avoided.

Found by Coccinelle.

Is there any other way this can be fixed as it is better to avoid GFP_ATOMIC?
