Subject: [PATCH 6/9] net: use kvmalloc with __GFP_REPEAT rather than open coded variant

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@...e.com>

fq_alloc_node, alloc_netdev_mqs and netif_alloc* open code kmalloc
with vmalloc fallback. Use the kvmalloc variant instead. Keep the
__GFP_REPEAT flag based on explanation from Eric:
"
At the time, tests on the hardware I had in my labs showed that
vmalloc() could deliver pages spread all over the memory and that was a
small penalty (once memory is fragmented enough, not at boot time)
"

The way how the code is constructed means, however, that we prefer to go
and hit the OOM killer before we fall back to the vmalloc for requests
<=32kB (with 4kB pages) in the current code. This is rather disruptive for
something that can be achived with the fallback. On the other hand
__GFP_REPEAT doesn't have any useful semantic for these requests. So the
effect of this patch is that requests smaller than 64kB will fallback to
vmalloc esier now.
