Subject: [PATCH 2/3] page allocator: Do not allow interrupts to use ALLOC_HARDER

Commit 341ce06f69abfafa31b9468410a13dbd60e2b237 altered watermark logic
slightly by allowing rt_tasks that are handling an interrupt to set
ALLOC_HARDER. This patch brings the watermark logic more in line with
2.6.30.
