Subject: [PATCH 3.2 23/27] tcp: md5: do not use alloc_percpu()

3.2.66-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

commit 349ce993ac706869d553a1816426d3a4bfda02b1 upstream.

percpu tcp_md5sig_pool contains memory blobs that ultimately
go through sg_set_buf().

-> sg_set_page(sg, virt_to_page(buf), buflen, offset_in_page(buf));

This requires that whole area is in a physically contiguous portion
of memory. And that @buf is not backed by vmalloc().

Given that alloc_percpu() can use vmalloc() areas, this does not
fit the requirements.

Replace alloc_percpu() by a static DEFINE_PER_CPU() as tcp_md5sig_pool
is small anyway, there is no gain to dynamically allocate it.
