Subject: [PATCH 4.9 064/130] ibmvscsis: Fix sleeping in interrupt context

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Bryant G. Ly <bryantly@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit a5b0e4062fb225155189e593699bbfcd0597f8b5 upstream.

Currently, dma_alloc_coherent is being called with a GFP_KERNEL
flag which allows it to sleep in an interrupt context, need to
change to GFP_ATOMIC.
